The Art Ministry

The Woods Art Ministry was created out of the conviction that the arts have an important role to play in the life of the church. Throughout history, the arts have been one of the significant ways that people express and understand religious truth.

The Art Ministry is responsible for art exhibits in the Wood Gallery and, from time to time, offers programs and resources related to the visual arts. These have included workshops, field trips and tours to view significant art, as well as providing visual arts for use in worship (banners, projected images, etc.)
