The Art Gallery serves also as the lobby for our theater. Each year six to eight new exhibitions are scheduled to coincide with theater productions. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm, Sundays 9:30am-1:00pm, and during all theater performances. Easiest access to the Gallery is through the west entrance to the church.
The Visual Arts Ministry is grounded in the belief that, as human beings, we are created in the image of God and that both the arts and religion are manifestations of the same creative spirit, deeply rooted in the human soul.
