Chalk artist coming to Albion church

By Lynda Jensen

Christian chalk artist Randy Davis plans to illustrate timely and visual messages Sunday, March 20 at Albion Evangelical Free Church, north of Howard Lake.

Davis, who hails from Iowa, has been doing distinctive and unique chalk art as his professional ministry since the late ‘80s. What's in it for YOU?

Many chalk artists will enhance their drawings through colored lights and special black light effects, commented Pastor Daniel Runke of Albion church.

“What makes Davis’ chalk art so distinctive and unique is that he concludes by revealing a surprising previously drawn “hidden picture” which emerges from the original drawing,” Runke said. “It is a picture you will never forget,” he said.

Davis’ method of illustrating Bible truths explains why his Christian artistry takes him to several hundred churches a year and is a full-time ministry.

“His chalk drawings convey a visual presentation you won’t want to miss,” Runke said.

Through the medium of art, Davis is able to illustrate how Jesus can transform lives.

Davis’ artwork is something suitable for both children and adults.

The entire program will last about one hour, starting at 10:30 a.m., but curious church-goers are encouraged to arrive early for a good seat.

Albion Free Church is located a half mile north of Wright County Road 35 and a half mile west of Wright County Road 5 on Fifth Street.

Those with questions may contact Runke at (320) 286-5442.

In the evening, at 7 p.m., Davis will be drawing a different picture at South Haven Covenant Church, 74246 CSAH 19, located four miles south of Highway 55 on County Road 2.

Those interested in the South Haven demonstration may contact Mike McCain at (320) 905-7526 for more information.
