Fine Arts Eugene Maison

The Peoria First UMC has several fine arts ministries. Foster Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the church, and we've had several well known artists display here. We're also at Lincoln grade school offering a children's choir and an after school program. Find us at www.peoria1.com and discover how you can experience our fine art gallery or volunteer to make a difference in the lives of others through our arts ministry.

On his final episode hosting The 116, Greg Fish invites Pastor Tim Ozment to the studio to think about how we can discern God's will when making tough decisions. How can I hear the voice of God? How can I know I'm making the right decision? Can I ruin God's plan for my life? Greg and Pastor Tim examine their own stories for better understanding of how God calls us, moves us, and makes us wise. The 116 will return with new hosts and more great episodes soon. Join us for the conversation at peoria1.com. Stay connected with Greg through social media as well as at corbinfostermedia.com.

Julie Bell, Director of Connectional Ministries, joins us today for a helpful conversation. Join us for the conversation at peoria1.com.

Pastor Tim Ozment joins us for an engaging and challenging look at whether it's time, or even safe, to return to church. While people have returned to most pre-Covid public gathering spaces, church seems to be that final frontier where people have stayed away in record numbers. Should we gather as believers? Is online worship OK? Join us for the conversation at peoria1.com.

Artist Bill Wuthrich turned a passion for drawing into the pursuit of painting on canvas, and capturing the most artistic photographs. He's our guest on this episode of The 116, and he'll be talking about a recent public exhibit of his work, as well as discussing how life, faith, and art intersect. It's an intriguing look into capturing the beauty of God's creation. Join us for the conversation at peoria1.com.
