Our desire in the Creative Arts Ministry is to encourage and disciple a community of talented artistic collaborators for the glory of God Almighty to be used not only here at First Missionary, but also in the community.
We value excellence - being skilled at what we present, from playing musical instruments and singing to running sound and video.
We value growth through discipleship, both spiritually and technically.
We value community - building a culture of collaboration within the church body.
"Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heaven! Praise him for his mighty works; praise his unequaled greatness. Praise him with the a blast of the ram's horn; praise him with lyre and harp! Praise him with the tambourine and dancing; praise him with strings and flutes! Praise him with a clash of cymbals; praise him with loud clanging cymbals. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!"
Whether you play an instrument, sing, act, are an artist, enjoy the technical aspect of worship or like to talk to people, the Creative Arts team has a way for you to be involved!
