Event description
Do you miss the way life was pre-pandemic? Do you miss finding cool stuff to do around town with your people? We've got something for you!

About this Event

Local artist Tyler Kay, gastrochurch and Westminster UMC are teaming up to bring you safe opportunities to get you out of the house this October and do something that will feed your spirit.

During the month of October we will be creating an Instagram worthy art wall on the front lawn of Westminster UMC in the galleria area and we'd love for you to help us do it! Space will be limited (to adhere to social distance guidelines) so you have to sign up, but bring someone from your quarantine posse, pack a picnic and come help us make something beautiful out of this ugly year.

Saturday, October 31 - Pack a picnic and help us get our art wall started as Tyler Kay (and YOU) paint our design onto our panels.

If you don't want to pack a picnic yourself, please visit one of our local restaurants. Local Foods, Dish Society, MOD Pizza, Zoe's Kitchen are all right across the street from our front lawn!

*Note restrooms will not be available*

gastrochurch

gastrochurch is a gathering to talk about things that matter, especially spiritual things. We talk about forgiveness, justice, growth, disappointment, gratitude, etc. And we do it over food. Something happens when you share a really good meal that makes meaningful conversation easier. We love getting creative with our themes and menus, and seeing where the food takes us. Before the pandemic we used to meet in restaurants, homes, yards, and the occasional farm to share an intentional meal together. For the moment we gather virtually, but we're hoping this opportunity will give us a chance to see folks face to face (from a distance) as well a chance for the meaningful interactions we've been missing.

For more information about who we are visit us at gastrochurch.org or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
