Featuring the Chalice Sparks and Flames
Open to all children grades K-3. We introduce each child to the interactive wonders of music through games, songs, and experiences. We have fun learning all the parts that make up music and deepen the desire to sing! The Chalice Sparks meet on Tuesdays from 5:30-6:00 p.m. from September – May and perform during services on the second Sunday during these months.
Open to all children grades 4-7. Our purpose is to continue developing the voice and to introduce children to melodic and percussive instruments. The Chalice Flames meet on Tuesdays from 6:00-6:30 p.m. and perform during services on the second Sunday of each month.
We encourage creative expression from the youngest to the oldest in our church. Each year, we offer a holiday musical in December, and we also have other performance opportunities throughout the year.
Please contact Sarah Libert, Acting Music Director
We encourage each other’s creative expression in small and large group gatherings.
Art Journal Workshop
Art Journal Workshop meets once a month and holds occasional weekend-long workshops. We have developed an art journal practice that benefits us both personally and spiritually. We would love to have you join our community! All you need is an unlined journal and a willingness to put words and images on its pages. Contact us.
Readers’ Theater meets once a month on a Saturday evening for a social half-hour, a potluck, and a director’s presentation of some members in a one-act play or play excerpt. We enjoy newcomers bringing fresh perspectives and talents. Welcome! Contact us.
Open Mic meets monthly on second Wednesdays. We want your creative energy! Each month we gather to share music, stories, and poetry with a supportive audience. Contact us.
Stitch ‘N Whine
Stitch ‘N Whine meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month. All types of craft and crafters are welcome! Bring a project if you have one and enjoy some conversation while you work. Connected by our interests in crafts and our shared conversation, we are a supportive circle that is open to new participants. Contact us.
