members expelled by the Methodist Episcopal Church
over issue of lay rights and representation.
Throughout the years, the congregation has been at
the forefront of Christian social action. They have
taken it upon themselves to lend their support to
the arts and social actions in a variety of
different mediums and settings.
In maintaining St. Johnís social action and interest
in the community along with the arts, the Fresco
School will also be involved in community outreach
programs. We plan to offer scholarships to
low-income and homeless individuals with the desire
of giving them applicable skills. It is our hope
