Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous!  Praise befits the upright.  Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; make melody to Him with the harp of ten strings!  Sing to Him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts.  For the word of the Lord is upright, and all His work is done in faithfulness.             [Psalm 33:1-4  ESV]


Welcome to the Creative Arts Ministry at First Evangelical Free Church where our goal is to glorify the LORD by ‘skillfully’ using various genres of the fine arts while providing an environment for our volunteers to grow spiritually and artistically.

WE VALUE:

•    God and people above fine art
•    Artistic exploration while remaining faithful to Biblical truth (2 Timothy 2:15)
•    The growth of the artist in every area of life (Matthew 22:37)
•    Collaboration in a gracious environment (Ephesians 4:3)
•    The creative process as a privilege
•    Excellence as a common pursuit (1 Corinthians 12:31)
