New Artwork in Connection Café

Stop by the west wall of the Connection Café and see our new artwork.  It is a commissioned piece in memory of Lawrence Turner.  It represents Jesus as the Light of the World.  Lawrence, who collected lighthouses in his lifetime, was a faithful member of the Thursday Journeymen men’s bible study and it seemed fitting to display this artwork in the café, where the Journeymen met every week.
