Creative Arts Ministry
Lida Martin, RScP, Ministry Leader
Our Center has a creative congregation including musicians, singers, drummers, painters, crafters, dancers, poets, writers, and actors. This ministry serves our Center by providing opportunities to share creative expression through church services and other gatherings.
Participants allow the love of spirit to flow through them as they serve. Friendships form as people collaborate in shared artistic endeavors. All artists at all levels are welcome. We find that artistic passion is contagious. This ministry creates a community that blesses everyone by bringing greater beauty to our world. To learn more about this ministry, please click here.

Self-expression feeds the soul of our Spiritual Center. The Writer’s Circle, an off-shoot of the Creative Arts Ministry, provides opportunities to put aside the demands of day-to-day living and find the time and space to write. All writers are welcome into this safe space.
The writers in our group provide an outlet for participants’ own personal writing goals. In addition, this group provides written material such as skits, poems, and sacred readings for our Center’s projects. Our Writer’s Circle offers a space of joy and passion that blesses the world one word at a time.
This group meets on the second Mondays of the month from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the Herron House, 133 S. Laurel Street. To learn more about the Writer’s Circle, please click here.
Jennifer Merlich, Ministry Leader
Life often feels too busy and serious. The High Spirits Ministry encourages participants to have fun in social events outside of our Spiritual Center. Sometimes it’s a hike, a comedy show, a concert, a picnic; sometimes this group supports a congregant who is involved in a creative endeavor such as a play.
People join together to share the laughter and joy that forges friendships. And since we believe that God is everywhere, this group evokes the presence of a joyful God, celebrating life. This ministry blesses our membership, invites newcomers, and sends out ripples of outrageous, contagious joy into the world. Stay tuned for more about this group’s next event.
