Chancel Arts

Worship consists of many elements. The pastoral staff preaches. The choirs sing. And the Chancel Arts Committee brings it all alive visually! This group of creative artists works with fabric and a variety of materials to:

  • Design and create banners and other works on a grand scale to enhance the Sanctuary and highlight seasons of the church year.
  • Involve people of all ages and abilities in a fun, creative group.
  • Meet on an as-needed basis on Tuesday evenings.
