Created with imagination
Artwork from Hopesters is displayed throughout the building. Gallery walls around the atrium are adorned with new artwork every 8 to 12 weeks along with an artist’s statement of how the work strengthens their faith and glorifies God. Artists with a heart for Jesus are encouraged to offer a body of work for display. Volunteers are also needed to help hang the artwork.
Organizing and Planning
The Creative Arts Ministry supports many of Hope’s ministries by providing art projects, make-and-take art, craft projects, displays and set design for worship and events. If you’d like to help with brainstorming and executing these creative projects, we’d love to have your help!
