                       The Art Auction You've Been Waiting For                      
 From the pastor: 

         It's time for my favorite night of the year -- the Peace of Triune Art Auction. Sponsored by the Upstate Woman's Club, the fourth annual affair will be October 20 at 7 PM at the new Upper Room, 7 College St. (at the corner of North Main).
        You'll be able to bid on work by our Triune artists as well as that of area professionals. Daniel Lyles will be our auctioneer, and Chef Peter Collins of CHEF360 Catering will donate the hors d'oeuvres.

           If you are an early bird holiday planner, here's your chance to get a jump start on your Christmas gift giving. Our Christmas honor card was created by Karen Lucci, the founder of our art program. "Garments of Praise" is an exuberant collage-and-paint depiction of three dancing women. Inside are these words:
A gift has been given in your honor to Triune Mercy Center.

This holiday gift will spread the joy of Jesus Christ
to the homeless and hurting people Triune serves.

     You may purchase the cards in our reception area at 222 Rutherford Street or by mailing in the form below. Minimum donation is $10.
       If you want us to address, stamp and send them, enclose your mailing list as well as the signature you want on the card, and an extra $1 per card, please.
        We hope you will share in our praise this Christmas. 
"Garments of Praise" by Karen Lucci is featured on our holiday honor card.
