Creative Arts

The Creative Arts community at Christ Church provides a community for different artists to share ideas, projects, and their desires to serve God and others through their specialties. This community is open to seasoned artists and those first exploring a particular gift of passion. We know that God moves through the hands and minds of artists in a myriad of ways.  We hope that through this collective, artists would feel known and valued. We also hope that through this community, artists will find a safe place to share their work, explore what God might be saying to them, and serve through many different ministries.


Experience God's hand in your life through: 
Paint and watercolor, music and song, dance, poetry, drama, photography, video, digital art, prose, and other mediums.

We seek to maintain the highest standards for both artist and the viewing public. We enforce an “ORIGINALS ONLY” policy.

Participation is open to artists working in performing arts such as poetry, spoken word, singer/songwriting, music, short dramas, film, and other video shorts. We enforce an “ORIGINALS ONLY” policy so please be sure that the piece you submit is original to you. Please submit a script or video clip of any performance pieces by the deadline below.

Theme | A Sense of Place:
A broad theme where we hope to capture images and art that help artists celebrate their creative purposes. Artists may submit work related to this theme. Since worship is directed at God but also comes from our own unique contexts, experiences and stories, we will consider projects and pieces that point both toward God as well as the tangible, daily human experiences of God.
