Zion United Church of Christ will again interpret Christianity through the arts with its second annual Christian Arts Festival this Saturday at the church. Festival Co-chairwoman Jeanne Stoner expects attendance from last year's festival, about 150 people, to double this year because the festival has been combined with the church's fall pancake breakfast. Also, there are more musical acts, including a barbershop quartet and organ recital, and more children's activities, organizers say. This year's festival theme is "a spiritual quest through the arts," and the festival will again feature an arts contest.
