WORSHIP + THE ARTS
Our Passion...is to help people recognize God's presence, so that we might all encounter Him, listen to Him, and be compelled to offer all of our heart, mind, soul, and strength in response to Him. We try to collectively interact with and participate in the rich narrative that God is weaving throughout history.
Our Purpose...is to open up the lines of communication between our church family and our God through the use of The Word, the sacraments, prayer, and the arts. We humbly seek the power of the Holy Spirit to guide us in remembering the life, teaching, and saving work of our Savior Jesus, to the glory of God the Father.
Our Patterns...two identical worship gatherings have evolved from ancient roots with modern interpretation. We create, recreate, and curate the elements and spaces for our worship gatherings, realizing that artistic expression helps us process the stories and mysteries of life with God. Our worship gatherings are interactive, meaningful and honest; we're more interested in healthy relationships with God and each other than impressing people, so we seek to humbly work out our faith through worship that forms, reforms, and informs those relationships.
Want to join us as we serve?
From drama, dance, music, visual arts, sight and sound, tech, lights, video production, environment design, and more, we try to utilize the arts to create an atmosphere for our gatherings that is interactive, honest, and full of humanity.
We would love for you to join us on our journey.
