Music & Arts
Ministry through the Arts
Because God is our creator, and our creation in God’s image makes us creative beings as well, our endeavors in the arts are an important reflection of our relationship to God. The Arts Ministry encourages the development of our artistic gifts and the use of those gifts in worship, discipleship, evangelism and service. We invite you to express and deepen your relationship with God through music, drama, visual art, film and dance.
