What does “Clement Arts” mean?
The word “clement” means “merciful.” At Clement Arts, we view the art and music we make as opportunities to communicate goodness, truth, and beauty. We want to respond to God’s mercy by putting Him on display. We know that God cares deeply for the orphan (James 1:27, Psalm 68:5, Isaiah 1:17), so our music and art becomes a platform for the merciful call to orphan care.
What does Clement Arts do?
Primarily, Clement Arts hosts events such as art shows and concerts to raise funds for selected adoptive families in our community. There are three areas of impact that we strive toward: 1) Rallying financial & emotional support for adoptive families, 2) Raising orphan care awareness in our community, and 3) Exposing the gospel of Jesus Christ as the means by which we are adopted into God’s family (Romans 8:15, Galatians 4:4-5, Ephesians 1:5)
How are adoptive families selected for support?
Currently, our board selects families from within the community that need support. Therefore, we do not have an application process at this time. However, if you or someone you know is in need of adoption support, we would love to hear from you. You can send us a message through our contact page.
Does Clement Arts support adoptive families from any location?
While our desire and plan is to expand our support to communities across the Southeast, we currently consider only families from the Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL area for support.
