This week we will be getting know Maddie Binsfed in our effort to learn more about the people that make up Trinity City Church. Be sure to check out Instagram and Facebook this week as Maddie shares life from her point of view.
What neighborhood do you live in?
I currently live in the dorms at the University of Northwestern, but I grew up in Rockford, Minnesota.
What’s your vocation?
I’m finishing up the last semester of my visual arts education degree, hoping to be licensed and teaching art after I graduate in December.
What’s something a lot of people don’t know about you?
I’m never bored! Even though life is crazy busy right now, whenever I have a lull or free time, I always have so many things I enjoy doing, like reading, baking, painting, drawing, or spending time with friends.
What's your favorite thing about living in the Twin Cities?
I love being so close to so many things, like the Minneapolis institute of art, a plethora of coffee shops, and being close to friends at Northwestern and Trinity.
How long have you attended TCC?
Since November of 2016, almost two years.
How do you serve at TCC?
Currently I serve as a scripture reader, and I would love to get more involved after I graduate.
What’s something you appreciate about TCC?
I love the layout of the services, how Bible-based the sermons are and the friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
Tell us about your art show? Inspiration?
I have always loved photographing landscapes, whether I see a beautiful sunset while on a bike ride, or stormy clouds while I’m driving home. I was inspired to try translating these little moments onto canvases, not to create a piece identical to the photo but to have a new little world existing on its own.
