Arts Ministry

creationWe are called by God to be artists of a new creation. This creative vocation is a sign of the new life that is ours in Jesus Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we have received gifts of imagination, creativity, of poetry and song, of dance, drama and vision. How will you use those sacred gifts? We hope that you will be inspired as you seek to respond to your creative calling.

The WRPC Arts Ministry affirms that all people embody the divine creative spirit. We seek to glorify God through studying, appreciating, and creating art that inspires worship, enhances education, and engages the community we serve.

Bearing Witness Exhibit

bearingOur Bearing Witness was a small but very successful exhibit in the Voice of the Spirit Gallery.  Many thanks to all who exhibited their art and their stories. 

This exhibit is no longer showing.

An undeniable truth is that life also brings loss. The death of a dear friend, partner, spouse, or child leaves a deep wound that never fully heals. Yet, “the longer we live, the more fully we become aware of who she was for us, and the more intimately we experience what her love meant for us.” (Henri Nouwen). The practice of creating art can give space to remember, reflect, and honor a beloved one.
