Tidings from Pastor Tera

In the darkest time of year we long for the Light. For many, darkness makes it hard to drive, so we have moved our Saturday worship service to 330 p.m. (until the spring time change) so the Light of Christ can be shared in worship.

Local artist wins grant to fund Isle Royale residency

Julie Highlen, an artist from Deerton, has been selected to receive a $1,250 grant from the State of Michigan Arts and Culture Council (MACC) for her upcoming artist-in-residency at Isle Royale National Park. Highlen, known for her artwork focusing on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and Lake Superior shorelines, aims to incorporate scenes from Isle Royale, based on her personal experiences on the island. This grant, a part of the MACC’s fiscal year 2024 funding, was awarded through a competitive peer review process. Highlen was among 711 applicants vying for the funds. The grant will enable her to spend approximately two weeks on Isle Royale in August 2024, where she plans to create a series of paintings on small wood block panels. These “mini moments” will capture various aspects of life on the island, from its natural beauty to its wildlife and historical landmarks, including the Edisen Fishery and the Rock Harbor Lighthouse. Highlen expressed her gratitude for the award, stating her commitment to making the most of this opportunity.
