Are you interested in using your artistic and spiritual gifts to bring healing and justice? Come join artists of all kinds and art appreciators in exploring healing for ourselves and others.

Our mission: We are a community that focuses on helping artists of all kinds and art appreciators grow in their relationship with God and others, and flourish in their God given creative gifts artistically and spiritually, together in community. We seek to create art and be one that encourages justice, peace and change by reflecting God to the world and to each other.

What do we do? We'll share our story/artistic pieces, pray, reflect on Scripture, support each other, and listen to God for each other and for ourselves. We'll practice these things on outreach excursions in the community by supporting artistic events and looking for ways to serve inside and outside the church. There are opportunities to serve once a month at the Vineyard Care Center too.

This fall we will explore parts of the book Finding Divine Inspiration by J. Scott McElroy. Some nights we will focus more on exploring creativity during worship, with a short message and prayer and prophetic ministry.

Worship with Creativity Night:  We added an additional night of extended worship with creativity, a short message and ministry time; on Monday, October 30th from 7-9pm in La Vina Auditorium.  All are welcome!  Come and worship God together and you're free to draw, write, paint, dance, sing, play your instrument of choice, etc..during our time together.  We will be having prayer and prophetic ministry time as well.  Some snacks and water will be provided.  

Creative Writer's Workshop:  Saturday, November 18th in La Vina Auditorium from 9:30am-2:00pm.  Arrive early for check in.  Lunch included in cost.  Cost is $30. This workshop is for all levels of writers; beginners up to professionals.  Featuring Dick Ryan, former National Director and now Senior National Arts Specialist for InterVarsity Arts Ministry.  Author, Cherita Banton and songwriter and leader of Hope for Artists arts community, Linda Sylvester will also be sharing. This event will also be a fundraiser for the Evanston Vineyard Care Center and to raise money to feed Eden School orphange in Haiti.  All are welcome!
