Drawn to the Word

Artist and Pastor Paul Oman will literally draw the congregation to the word at 9 a.m. Sunday, May 20, when he paints a larger-than-life-sized mural of Shalom Lutheran Church's vision and core values.

The church says the story he tells will unfold artistically, musically, narratively and scripturally, and that everyone is welcome. Following worship, Oman will hold a special workshop where he quickly draws the Bible story on large paper. Students will read and hear the story, then color his pictures, adding their own drawings.

Shalom is at 681 Voyager Drive in Alexandria.
