Make plans now to join us on June 16th!

For centuries, monasteries served as bastions of civility, preserving learning and extending charity to those around them. In this context a rich tradition of beer making developed, one that provided for the poor and evidenced a belief in a God who desires to see life and creativity flourish. Sadly, this sacred craft has all but disappeared from the Church today.
For this reason Northland Village Church has chosen to embrace this art, because we also are a people who care about community, hospitality, and creativity. This beer is the fruit of our labor. We hope enjoying it will spark good conversation and deep reflection on the beauty of this life.
NVC has bottled our first batch of beer, connecting with the historic tradition of the church being the place that makes the best brew. Our beer, “The Reconciler”, will be released on July 18 at 55 Degree wine in Atwater Village at 7pm.
A FREE GLASS OF OUR BEER
will be given to all who attend (over 21)! That’s right, a free glass of our craftsmen double Belgium, laced with a hint of IPA will be given to celebrate the occasion. Also, non-alcoholic root beer will also be given away at the event for those who don’t drink alcohol. See you on July 18!!!
Reserve your glass at our Facebook Page.
There has been a budding tradition building with the Summer Nights on the Blvd. happening in Atwater Village. This tradition continues to grow as this year’s events will all include art dispursed throughout the village. Be sure to check out the new website for details on how this will unfold.
Thanks to Long Hall Entertainment for filming the event

“Atwater Village has a new addition to its’ public art landscape. A new untitled “graffiti mural” now adorns the rear wall of Samurai Automotive at 3105 Casitas Ave, just next to the “Trains Shaping History” mural.”

TRANSIENTS is a short film about two artists with disabilities (a deaf musician and an environmental artist), and you can see the trailers for the film online here: http://www.youtube.com/transientsfilm
Here’s what you need to know about the shoot itself:
Depending on your art form, you would be a painter, sculptor, environmental, or mixed media artist at an arts festival. Your scene would be filmed at Ford Park in Redlands on May 27, and you would be needed from 8am-4pm or so. You would be expected to be committed as an actor on the film, which means being there on time and ready with the necessary items.
You will be allowed to work on your art the entire time, even when you are not being filmed. Also, we may be getting a tarp or canvas that is 6×6 or 12×12 so that the artists can potentially collaborate on a large-scale live painting to debut at the film’s summer premiere.
You would need to bring your own items (canvas, brushes, paints, materials, easels, tools, objects use for your sculpture, etc), *wear NO white or green*, and have no nudity. If you have a live subject you want to paint or sculpt, bring them along (they just can’t be nude)! You can bring a current painting or installation you are working on and also some old ones for display. You are encouraged to bring friends who engage in any or all of the following mediums, who would also bring their own materials and work on their projects: sculpture, painting, mixed media installation, found object art, environmental art. We want to create a DIY atmosphere.
We’d love to have you in the film.
I look forward to hearing from you!
