Beloved Community Arts Center (BCAC) Donations

Donations

Advent Lutheran will be offering a winter session in our exciting new community arts program. The winter session begins Saturday, January 26, 2019. It will be a ten-week program that will offer beginning group guitar, hand drumming, group violin,  and group singing. The inaugural session will culminate in a musical presentation on Saturday, March 30 where students will share what they’ve learned.

The Beloved Community Arts Center’s (BCAC) mission is to join local families in music classes open to all children, regardless of economic standing.  We are pleased to expand the offerings to include children and youth grades one through twelve.

What is The Beloved Community?

We all benefit when we know, respect, help and delight in the people who are our neighbors – and when our neighbors do so for us. We depend upon one another. Our lives are richer when we are amazed by our differences and can learn with one another and from one another. The vision of The Beloved Community comes to life when we live in this way. The Beloved Community overcomes isolation and fear with relationships of care, justice and creativity. The people of Advent Lutheran Church intend to contribute to growing The Beloved Community right here in South County through creating new possibilities for children and youth to create music and other arts together. We believe that when we fail, God’s grace abounds for us and our neighbors to begin again.

We will continue to provide guitar rentals and drums for our young musicians to use in class this winter session.  While we have established a fleet of guitars and percussion, other instruments needs may arise including maintenance and repairs.   

We wish to create excellence in all aspects of this program and this includes offering excellent quality instruments for our students.  Our guitar rental program uses the instruments listed below.

Yamaha JR2 ¾ Scale Folk Guitar Natural

$220.00 (includes Case & 3 year warranty) – need 6 -10

Yamaha FS800 Folk Acoustic Guitar Natural

$270.00 (includes Case & 3 year warranty) – need 6 – 10

While violins are rented through local violin shop, Kamimoto Strings, you may consider offering a donation to help a family with the quarterly rental fee of $80.

If you wish to help provide an instrument or two, you may consider doing so in honor or memory of someone.  To support BCAC through a donation, please contact our church office at 408-779-3551.
