Fine Arts Ministry

we engage our creative instincts

Our mission in the Fine Arts Ministry is to make and mature followers of Jesus Christ through participation in fine arts.

The Bible begins with, “In the beginning, God created…”

Those who participate in our Fine Arts Ministry feel most “in tune” with God when we engage our creative instincts to enhance worship services, minister to our community, and provide meaningful artistic experiences for all members of our congregation.

Safety protocols currently prohibit us from providing the rich array of singing ensembles typically available to any interested person. However, we anticipate a return to more ordinary schedules in the near future. There are some fun things you can investigate immediately if you want to join our community of creative artists.

    Technical Crews

    We are always looking for individuals who would love to help run cameras, work on sound, and become involved in a host of additional production activities. Since we currently record two services each week, our tech teams can always benefit from new helpers willing to learn from our experienced leadership team. Contact Technical Director, David Bailey, at dbailey@fpclakeland.org if you would like to help.

GETTING INVOLVED

If you have a creative impulse and a personal desire to serve the Lord by giving your talents to the church, be in touch. We often need dancers, readers, actors, additional musicians, set builders, painters, and craftspeople. If you want to be involved, we’ll find a way to involve you. Your ideas and your passions have a place here at FPC.
