The Collective - Kingdom-minded Creatives

Creativity spans beyond fine arts.
God's creative nature is in you - how does it flow through you? 

The Collective is a new Infused Arts community that will focus on our role as artists and creatives in God's Kingdom, have discussions around this and many other important topics. The first Thursday of EACH month is designed to encourage our creative journey, challenge it as well, and broaden our vision for how God wants to flow through us to touch this broken and searching world by our art, imagination, and creativity. 
The Collective is the FIRST Thursday of each month, beginning in February. Each month will have a different topic or theme. February is "Why Creativity Matters to God."

All genres of creativity are welcome!! For example; knitters, home chefs, fine artists, writers, poets, dancers, singer/song writers, musicians, graffiti and tattoo artists, hair stylists, photographers, digital artists, sculptures, wood-working, fiber art, sewing, drama... okay, I think you get the point. :)

Please join The Collective, a group of creatives hungry for more of the Lord and seeking first His Kingdom as it pertains to our art and creativity!

There is no fee for this gathering. Coffee will be on hand, indeed. See you February 4th at 6:30pm!

KidCare is provided but you must register your little ones a week before the event. From the pull down menu, click "Infused Arts" - here's the link to register.

Are you coming to The Collective on 2/4? Let me know!

Hope to see you there!

Art Reception POSTPONED

Hello friends!!

Due to the pending storm and the impossibility to nail down when it may arrive, we've decided to postpone tomorrow night's art reception to Friday, 1/29, 6pm to 8pm. One artist participating comes from Reading and a few more from Lancaster and I know some of you plan to come and you drive from Baltimore and Harrisburg - I don't want to put any of you at risk should the snow begin to fall earlier than what's expected. 

I hope you are able to come enjoy a fantastic evening full of art and creativity next week!! Again here's the NEW date for the Art = Ministry Art reception:

Friday, January 29, from 6pm to 8pm at Living Word Community Church

Same awesomeness, different night!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Be in joy and stay safe in the blizzard!

The January/February exhibit, Art = Ministry is up and looking amazing. The stories are even more amazing! Click here to read a copy of The Heart Behind the Art booklet and prepare to be blown away by how God uses surrendered artists to minister to our broken and searching world. Below are a host of photos of the exhibit.

Reminder: The Art Reception is Friday, January 29, from 6pm to 8pm in the Common Grounds Gallery. It's going to be an evening jam-packed with creativity! There will even be art tables for you to explore your artistic abilities. And of course, you'll hear from the artists, there will be a live painting demo, and our friend, Ramon will be here to stylize your name into graffiti. This is a family friendly evening. Snacks and coffee will be provided too. Hope you can make it!
