Music & Arts

Our God has revealed himself as the God of creation and beauty. As his image bearers, part of reflecting his beauty and image in this world involves the act of making, re-creating. We believe the Church should of all places value great art.

About Us

The Music & Arts Ministry at Church at the Cross is a collective of song-writers, painters, filmmakers, photographers, designers, textile, and other visual artists striving to make great art in community with one another. We desire to be artists and creatives who are theologically formed, artistically enriched, relationally driven, and enthusiastically imaginative.

Holy Week Gallery - "Resurrection"

resurrection-art-gallery-hs

We’re asking artists to consider the themes of new life, new birth and joy.

Some works might explore the idea of resurrection itself, while others may consider what joy might entail, visually. Some pieces might communicate a personal exploration of experiencing joy out of chaos, finding new life born out of a former circumstance.

Our hope is that as this exhibition explores the transformative idea of resurrection and renewal, we will experience afresh the glory of the resurrection of Jesus, and the ways in which we’ve been brought out of the ashes of death’s grip through the radiance of God’s glory.

Anatomy of the Soul Art Gallery

Anatomy of the Soul Gallery

In his preface to the Psalter, John Calvin referred to the book of Psalms as, “An Anatomy of All the Parts of the Soul”. He believed you could not find an emotion expressed in the world that was not present within the Psalms – grief, sorrow, fear, doubt, hope, care, perplexity, wonder. Calvin believed that by perusing the Psalmists’s compositions, we would be both awakened to our own maladies as well as instructed to seek remedy for their cure.

This curated exhibition invites the artist to peruse these compositions and submit work that explores this broad range of human experience. Calvin understood the soul not as a fixed muscle in stasis, but a multifaceted complex organ emanating a spectrum of emotions and heartfelt expressions. This gallery seeks to portray work that addresses the range of these expressions and complexities of experience found throughout the Psalms.

This exhibition is displayed in the Atrium of Church at the Cross. We have two worship gatherings on Sunday mornings at 9am and 10:45am. The gallery will be open to view before and after both services. If you would like to view the gallery outside of Sunday morning, please contact Joseph Tenney at joseph@churchatthecross.com.
