Paper, fabric, clay, metal, ideas, dreams, and visions compel the creative spirit. That spirit fills a stained glass and carved wood sanctuary with airy Easter banners. It molds masks on the faces of Glen Lea Elementary students who then show their individual imaginings in paint and decoration. It hand-knits hats that tease out the personalities of those who made them and those who wear them. And that same spirit invites us all to participate in the creative impulse.

When Ruth Szucs, Music Associate at FBC, looked for her place in KOH2RVA, she decided to become a catalyst for missions. She’s chosen a project for each month and is enlisting different people to help each time.

October’s project was teacher appreciation for Glen Lea Elementary School in Henrico County. FBC staff contributed items and Ruth provided baking supplies. Three 11th graders baked and made signs. Ruth, her husband, Richard, and Steve Blanchard, Minister of Compassion, delivered the box of treats.

In November Ruth is getting help from the Carol Choir with a toy drive; in December she’s asking her neighborhood to help supply blankets for those in need. Her ideas of what to do and who can help continue through the year. And when next October comes around? She’s going to start all over again.
