Local potter Hollis Engley will demonstrate on his potter’s wheel as part of the 10 AM worship service Sunday, October 20, at North Falmouth Congregational Church.

On Sunday, October 20, at the 10 AM worship service, clay artist and potter Hollis Engley of The Barn Pottery and Bob Naylor, the interim pastor of the North Falmouth Congregational Church, will combine their talents through a sermon in clay.

While Reverend Naylor delivers a sermon titled “God’s Hands, Our Hands,” Mr. Engley will be throwing a bowl and a chalice on a potter’s wheel.

Rev. Naylor said the idea for the unusual combination came to him when he was thinking about how “our hands are God’s hands.” Scripture talks about God being the potter and humans being the clay, so Rev. Naylor thought it would be a natural fit to have a potter share in the sermon.

Mr. Engley is known in the area for his work, and as an arts educator. Children in attendance will have a chance to create art from clay.

North Falmouth Congregational Church is at 155 Old Main Road. The public is invited to share in this worship with its focus on the arts. A display of pottery can be viewed after the service.
