Under The Horizon (UTH) is a ministry/outreach based studio. We use our creative talents to serve our community – both near and far. How do we do serve? UTH’s community ministry/outreach efforts include CBAG a program designed to instill hope in children who have suffered some type of loss. The Blessing Box program for food insufficient families that provide sustainability food boxes throughout the year as well as numerous other efforts. All programs are directly supported by in-house activities such as sales from our pottery shoppe , online Etsy store (YouHadMeAtThumbprint), pottery lessons, activities in our DIY art room, summer camp, parties, field trips, and fundraisers as well as community donations, and service gratuity.

Here to Serve
This statement of faith is on behalf of the owner of Under The Horizon, Cathleen Lerew.
Jesus has always been present in my life. In March of 1999, as an adult, I received Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. Since this day, my desire is to live my life for His Glory has deepened. As a dedicated wife and mother, my family is led by my God-fearing husband. We raise our children in a faith-filled environment. My/our business workings are grounded in His teachings. Where we never claim to be perfect, we are human and we try our best. I pledge to hold the highest Biblical code of ethics in my transactions. It is my ambition through Under The Horizon and our ministry efforts, to treat my customers, students, employees, and volunteers with the utmost respect and integrity.
“Having the boldness and confidence to stand up in a crowd and make a statement about the things we believe in can often be very difficult, particularly if by doing so we may face ridicule or persecution, as is the case in many countries where freedom of expression and religious belief is opposed or forbidden. Here in North America making such a statement will inevitably drive some away, but it will also attract others who share the same faith or belief or, at least, respect the standard that such a statement expresses.” (Shephard’s Guide)
Under The Horizon and its activities, as directed by owner Cathleen Lerew, try to model behavior, words, and actions in line with the laws and principles of the Kingdom, taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ. To conduct business with the highest of integrity and moral standards means that the customer has a level of assurance that they will be treated with fairness and equity in the same spirit and attitude of love and care that our Lord expressed. We openly make the studio accountable to this divine standard and request that the community hold us to the standard.

CREATIVITY IS A GOD-GIVEN TALENT THAT PROMOTES ARTISTIC EXPRESSION. ARTISTIC CREATIONS BECOME A VEHICLE FOR LEARNING, HEALING, AND GROWING.
At Under The Horizon, affectionally known as UTH, you will be immersed in the creative arts before you even set foot in the building. From the inspirational murals painted on the walls by summer campers to the hand painted signs and decorations that adorn the building, it's creativity at first sight. Once inside, you will be surrounded by samples of student and professional creations in all stages, what a better way to adorn this artistic wonderland than art itself? Grab a marker and write your favorite quote on the wall of the studio and settle in among the quotes already inscribed there as you work on your own creations. There's an artist inside everyone, and this eclectic environment will help bring that out in you!
