Meeting House Arts Ministries (OMHAM) is founded upon
the belief that the arts are an integral part of religious
experience. Through art, literature, music, theater,
and movement human beings grow, explore their spiritual
needs, and express their deepest feelings. The arts
also bring people together, creating and strengthening
ties that enhance personal, social, and spiritual lives.
For a generation, the Old Meeting House has provided
strong support to the creative energy and artistic expression
of the community served by the church. This support
has nurtured a strong and diverse music program, the
periodic production of musical theater, a concert series,
visual arts exhibits, variety shows, creative worship
services, and the integration of the arts throughout
the OMH Sunday school curriculum. OMHAM is organized
to provide the infrastructure, administrative support,
and organizational context for this arts programming.
It will promote the arts within our spiritual community
and thereby strengthen the church and minister to those
reached by its activities.
Currently OMHAM is working on several Visual and Liturgical
arts projects. If your ministry is knitting, and you
bring a creative flair, see the announcements

Photographs needed for new OMHAM project
Do you volunteer at the food shelf or library? Have
you been in the peace corps? Have you ever helped in
an orphanage, a shelter, or soup kitchen? Do you mentor
a child or help someone learn to read? We want your
OMHAM is supporting a new project: a photo exhibit of
volunteer service that community members have participated
in. OMHAM is contributing frames and mats and some money
to enlarge images so that we can create an ever changing,
ever expanding exhibit of photos of the work that people
in our community have done to make the world a better
place. We are thinking that this exhibit will help us
learn about how others have served as well as inspire
us. So if you, or someone you know, have a few wonderful
photos of places or projects please let Wendy Soliday
know. She ideally would like good,quality digital images
but we'll try to help any who just have photos. We would
like to include as many people as possible so spread
the word. If you do a service project now, bring your
camera, and get some artistic shots. We'd also like
to have a short paragraph describing the photo and project.
We will use these frames to celebrate different service
projects and can also make them available for Sunday
school art and to artists that may want to exhibit but
aren't able to afford to frame their art. Of course
we will still have occasional art exhibits, like the
great Peter Sutherland and Jeneanne Lunn exhibits, so
if you or someone you know are interested in exhibiting
please let Wendy know. If you have ideas or suggestions
or photos please get in touch with her. She can be reached
by emailing email@example.com.
