Welcome to our Arts and Spirituality Center at Emmanuel Church!
We believe there is a connection between art and spirit in that the inspiration
which is part of creativity opens a space for spirituality.
Some of our offerings will be simply for the enjoyment of creating. Others will seek to explore that which connects the creativity and spirituality. Other offerings will focus solely on deepening the spiritual life. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey we hope you will find an offering here that interests you.
There are two worship services at Emmanuel that may be of special interest to Arts and Spirituality participants. When the Center closes on Tuesday nights, there will be a brief service of Compline in the classroom building at 9 pm. This service comes from the monastic tradition of prayers offered before bed and is a beautiful, peaceful way to end the day. Also, every third Sunday at 5:30 is the soothing music and silences of our Contemplative Eucharist, which promotes stillness and centering.
With a range of classes from Tai Chi to painting to meditative creativity, there’s something for everyone. Spirituality comes in many forms and, for many, it’s most freely expressed through creativity. Look at our classes for the upcoming session and sign up for the one(s) that most appeal to your own spirit of creativity.
Our classes are waiting for you! The Summer 2017 session runs from July 11 through August 8. Some classes are five weeks long, some are only one or two weeks.
