Creative Expression
The Creative Expression ministry was formed this year with the mission to build a space of reflection and embodiment for our spiritual growth and sense of community through the creative gifts and talents within our Grace family. The Creative Expression team is currently going through a process to identify programs and activities for the upcoming church year. An essential component of that process is getting input from our Grace community identifying areas of specific creative interest as we consider our 2015-16 program inclusive of workshops, classes, retreats, and events.

Provided is a link to a survey built around the creative talents within our parish we identified at GWAG last winter. This survey asks for feedback on creative areas you would like to explore deeper and also identify individuals who have specific talents they would like to share. We are asking parishioners of Grace Church to take a few minutes to complete this quick survey, providing us a path for our journey.  ⇒ Creative Expression Survey
