Arts

The vitality of St. John’s grows out of its faithful, spirited community—a hearty fellowship where creativity, playfulness, and good humor are celebrated. This lively, energetic congregation embraces the powerful potential of the arts in lifting up our offerings of thanks and praise with beauty and joy, exploring our God-given gifts and identities, and proclaiming an inspired gospel witness. Working, playing, and praying with the creative arts offer unique opportunities for insight and discovery. St. John’s recognizes the value of Art in our worship, education, and outreach ministries and in the expression of who we are, as individuals and as a community. The contemporary aesthetic style of our sanctuary features an altar made by noted Japanese-American woodworker, architect, and furniture-maker George Nakashima. In recent years, St. John’s has hosted a semi-annual Autumn Arts Festival and community arts classes. Planning is currently underway to bring this festival back from hiatus. In the months and seasons ahead, we look forward to exploring new opportunities for artistic expression and involvement, which may come to include community galleries, workshops, and residencies. Over the coming months, our church members will participate in a series of community art projects, beginning with the collective design and development of a banner for St. John’s.
