art ministry

visual arts contribute to the worship of God by stimulating our spiritual development as we recognize

God’s ongoing acts of creativity and are touched in new ways by Divine Mystery.

"The Rising"- Jim Smith, artist

Sharing God's Creativity

Art Gallery History

Seeking to be good stewards of our resources, this congregation chose to maximize our new 2009 sanctuary by designing dedicated gallery space in the narthex for both rotating exhibitions and a permanent collection.



Art as a ministry invigorates us with new friendships and expansive vision.


Community Connections

While we connect with the global community through a shared visual language, we also engage with diverse local audiences as an active exhibition venue in Jacksonville.


We answer the call to embrace our community in the welcoming spirit of Christ as we share our story as a people of faith in image and deed. Please visit our gallery and join us for special programs throughout the year.
