Arts Ministry

creationWe are called by God to be artists of a new creation. This creative vocation is a sign of the new life that is ours in Jesus Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we have received gifts of imagination, creativity, of poetry and song, of dance, drama and vision. How will you use those sacred gifts? We hope that you will be inspired as you seek to respond to your creative calling.

The WRPC Arts Ministry affirms that all people embody the divine creative spirit. We seek to glorify God through studying, appreciating, and creating art that inspires worship, enhances education, and engages the community we serve.

Sacred Threads is a national biennial exhibition of more than 300 quilts exploring themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace-community, grief and healing. It was established to provide a safe venue for quilters who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spirtual journey. The objective is to create an exhibition of artwork that touches on both spiritual and personal levels, for all those who view it.
