Artists need community, and artists need to get better at their craft.

That’s why we, the drama ministry, exist at Grace Church -- to use our unique gifts to tell compelling stories that draw people into the presence of God, and to be an authentic community for artists. 

 If you are creative and need a place to connect – we are the team for you.

The Bible begins with the majestic pronouncement, “In the beginning, God created…” (Genesis 1:1). This is stunning in simplicity, yet profound in implication.  We are first introduced to God as the Creator, the Original Artist.

Creativity is a gift from God. The best way to thank him is to develop and use our gifts
  1. The arts give an experience that impacts the whole person. When moved by a story, we want to enter into its action and meaning.
  2. The arts allow us to experience events and situations we would not normally encounter, through the power of the imagination. They offer windows to observe some aspect of life or human experience.
  3. In the rush of daily life, we look at many things, but we see very little. The arts can make the familiar appear unfamiliar, so that we are invited to see with fresh eyes and receive new insight. 
People need the arts. They need to experience things with their full being – mind, soul, spirit, and this training can offer that experience.
