Make a Difference Day 
 
The next Annual “Make a Difference Day” will be held in October and is an opportunity for the entire community to come together and offer 4 hours of volunteer service to vulnerable, elderly, or homebound residents at a variety of work projects throughout Fountain Hills. You may be painting, cleaning, patching, planting, raking, hauling debris and much more…every contribution makes a difference…neighbor helping neighbor! We begin the day at Golden Eagle Park  for juice, coffee, fruit and pastries, and you will receive your assigned worksite project and “kick-off” information.

Paul Oman   Drawn to the Word Artist    www.paulomanfineart.com
Paul Oman, artist and pastor, shares his Drawn to the Word artistic ministry with audiences ecumenically across the country. He served as a science teacher, then Lutheran pastor when, in 2011, he took up work as an artistic pastor full-time.
Paul seeks to give new vision to God’s Word by using the process of painting to captivate audiences in our visually oriented culture. Painting and drawing have been a part of Paul’s life since childhood. Receiving national & international recognition for his work in watercolor, Paul uses this gift to proclaim the Gospel unique and powerful ways that impact lives and inspire mission.
