Culture Fest

Culture Fest

 

YOU'RE INVITED!

Mark your calendars for MPCS Culture Fest, the biennial celebration of God’s diverse creation among our MPCS CommUNITY. Formerly the International Fair, Culture Fest will be held on November 3, from 5:00-8:00 p.m. in the Murray Arts Center, Grand Lobby.

This special event will be a time to gather together to fellowship as the body of Christ, while also celebrating the unique ways in which God has made each of us. Culture encompasses the ways of life of a population – arts, beliefs, and institutions – and are passed down through the generations. As Christians, the most important aspect of our shared culture is love and unity. As Colossians 3:14 says, “And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”

Join us for an immersive evening of food, music, art, cultural traditions, and activities from around the globe as we celebrate the many beautiful cultures represented by the MPCS community. Students will receive "passports" to travel the world and learn about different cultures.  This is a drop-in event for the whole family, and we welcome everyone. 

Planned Activities Stations:

  • Make an African hat
  • Build your own sombrero
  • Make your own maraca
  • Make DIY Chinese drums 
  • Live music, including bagpipes and more!

​​​​​​​

We are thrilled to have the following countries represented!

Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, England, Greece, India, Jamaica, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, Scotland, Sweden, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela

*Staff and students who ordered the Culture Fest T-shirt may wear it to school on Thursday with uniform bottoms (no jeans.)
