At The Grove we are passionate about the arts and seek to integrate the arts into our worship and culture as much as we possibly can. We serve a creative God, and being created in His image we feel we are also called to create.
We have a thriving community of artists that meets regularly (our art group meets the first Monday of each month in the coffee shop at 6:30pm) and we seek to support them and to help them grow in their craft, and we also put on many different artistic functions throughout the year for our artists to use the gifts that God has given them. If you’re an artist, we hope you feel at home at The Grove!
EXPRESSIONS GALLERY | IDENTITY
Artwork Deadline Jan. 8th, Gallery Opens Jan. 14
Too often we live unaware of and fail to live out our identity as children God. Some of us maybe have yet to grasp that concept, or maybe living under a "false" identity because of something we've done or has been done to us. For this next gallery, we want to encourage our artists to reflect on the truth of our Identity in Christ and of what God thinks about us and what He says about us by meditating on scripture and express it in a piece of art that will be displayed in an 8-week gallery at The Grove!
Some ideas to get you started: maybe a self portrait, or maybe a portrait of someone you know that you're praying for or want to encourage, or just of His children in general, etc. Sample scripture verses to reflect on and around: 2 Cor. 5:17, John 15:15, Gal. 3:26, 1 John 1:19, Rom. 5:8, Phil. 3:20, Eph. 2:10
