The actors group, StageLight, had their first outing this month. A group of 15 showed up for the summer event Jazz at the LACMA. These were the only pictures snapped, but a big thanks to everyone else that came out! StageLight meets the last Tuesday of the month for a night of prayer and fellowship and every 2 months they go out to do something fun and artistic together in the city!
The June 20th Inbetweeners meeting was a success! 8 people showed up and had a good time enjoying fellowship, food, prayer, and a creative demo shared by group leader, Sam Vest. He also spent time showing everyone a powerful new tool called “image blending” using Midjourney AI. Praise God for this powerful new tool. The next meeting will be held on the third Tuesday of every month. For more information, email Inbetweeners Animation Group
