Rex Venit: The King Has Come Exhibition at Mountain Church in Medford

Blessings of Advent!

Advent is a time we joyously connect culture to Christ through fine art. To celebrate and inspire, Masterpiece partners with our MOUNTAIN CHURCH in downtown Medford, OR from December 10-12th to host Rex Venit: The King Has Come, a Christmas art exhibition and 3 day event. It will be open to the public Friday 5:00-8:00 p.m., Saturday 1:00-5:00 p.m including workshops, and during Sunday morning worship services at 8:30, 10:00, and 11:30.

Opening Night
Doors open Friday night from 5:00 – 8:00.  At 6:30 the program begins with the spectacular “live” reenactment of a historic masterwork of art,  special music and more.  A local composer has written an original Christmas hymn for this event as we celebrate God with us!  Appetizers and gifts for sale too.

You will not want to miss this engaging depiction of Christ’s birth!  Performed Friday and Sunday only.
