Belmont, NC 28012

First United Methodist Church in Belmont, NC is pleased to host an exhibit of seventeen framed prints from the St. John’s Bible: the first illuminated, handwritten Bible to be commissioned in 500 years. A masterpiece of art and theology, it was created using traditional materials such as vellum, ancient inks, gold and silver leaf, and was written with quill pens. The exhibit will encompass reproduced pages from the St. John’s Bible beginning with the book of Genesis through the words of the Apostle Paul.  The exhibit kicks off the congregation's year-long chronological journey through scripture, Year Through the Bible.  More information about the Saint John’s Bible can be found at

The exhibit is free and open to the public on the following days:
Sundays from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Wednesdays from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
