God created the heavens and the earth. He is the Creator of all things. We are made in the image of God and therefore we are creative beings. God has given us an imagination. He has given each one of us talents and gifts. Consequently, we are all artists, and art can be done by everyone.
“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
On Sunday, August 15, we will be displaying congregation artwork that expresses our reflection on what we’ve studied together in Genesis 1-23. Some major themes in this section of scripture are: the creation account, the Garden of Eden, the fall of man, Noah and the flood, the Tower of Babel, plus the stories of Abraham and Issac.
We invite everyone in our congregation to engage in “creation” through physical practices of art-making. This might look like drawing, painting, photography, poetry, sculpting, and more.
Regardless of how you create, begin with prayer. Submit the process and results to God.
The art show will take place before and after service on August 15. If you’re unable to bring your piece to church by August 1, please contact us so we can get the work in by Tuesday, August 3.
Once you’ve created you artwork, just fill out the form to the right and tell us more about your submission.
