But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, + you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. Isaiah 64:8

Welcome! Creativity Ministry embraces the opportunity to deepen a relationship with Jesus in new creative ways. God is our creator! We are HIS vessels. May we yield to HIS hands as HE awakens our spirit to HIS presence in our life.

A key component of our ministry is the opportunity to experience God together as one, in the silence, through fellowship, making, creating + actively listening. The intention is to know God in real ways, in a relationship. As we create opportunities to experience GOD, we believe HE will show up! We welcome women, men + young adults to join + take part as we witness God moving among us.

Opportunities to Experience

Let’s EAT! A Dinner with Jesus
The idea for Let’s EAT comes from Eugene Peterson’s book Run with the Horses where he compares prayer to dinner with God. This evening last May focused on spiritual food, not actual food. It was a led evening of spiritual activity designed to be experienced online as a group together, with our dinner being a one on one private experience with God.

Compassion Project
The Compassion Project is a group of women appointed for the purpose to help other women in need through creative, innovative projects. Please see the calendar for upcoming events + ways to get involved. Learn more

Selah Service
This in-person service is filled with worship, prayer, silence + spiritual formation activities designed specifically to deepen one's relationship with God. Please see the calendar for upcoming dates.

Tuesday Lunchtime Study
This online group meets from 12:30pm - 1:30pm. In June we start a 12-week creative journey as we explore The Artist Way, A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity

Spiritual Gifts class
The Spiritual Gifts Class is being offered online and is open to men + women on Wednesday evenings, 8:00pm - 9:00pm, starting 6 July. It is hoped that this class will provide new ways + opportunities for people to explore + use their spiritual gifts to further equip our church, meet unmet needs + explore the new creative ways God will use the body of Christ. Learn more and register.

Weekend Retreats
Creativity Ministry invited Women, Men + Young Adults to come together at a two-day stART Retreat last May to experience God in new ways, being immersively present using art as a companion. We made things with our hands, saw things in new ways, captured moments + created something new!
