Connecting to God through the arts

AGIF | Creative has an incredible opportunity to help reveal a picture of who God is by utilizing the unique gifts & talents that each of us has been given. We exist to connect people to the heart of God and believe that everyone has the capacity to be creative.   

Within the church, the creative department encompasses many disciplines including weekend music, production & stage teams; but we also have a great community of visual artists, writers, dramatic artists, photographers, graphic designers, and video production enthusiasts.

We desire that all of our teams emphasize the ABC’s:

  • Attitude above Ability
  • Offering God our Best through the Pursuit of Excellence
  • Create a Community that Loves God & One Another [Acts 2:42-47]

 

Our Teams

Music

This team is made up of gifted musicians & vocalists who serve in our Saturday and Sunday gatherings as well as special events. It is our desire to lead out of the overflow of our personal relationship with god and the journey that he is taking us through. We want to meet people where they are and walk beside them to where god wants them to be.

Practices run weekly.
