Reaching hearts through the arts.

Poiema is on indefinite hold.

Ms. Lois has led this ministry for over 15yrs and on Sunday, January 15th 2023 we said goodbye to her as she is moving to another state. We are "mad, sad, and glad", as Mrs. Roz put it, but we know that God has a great season ahead for her! You can jump to this part of the service from 1/15/23 here.

We will pray about restarting Poiema again IF & when the Lord brings the right person to lead this unique ministry since we love to see God "reaching hearts through the arts."


"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them."
Ephesians 2:10
Poiema is our Creative Arts ministry that is led by Ms. Lois and meets weekly to rehearse & worship. (Anyone interested needs to first sign-up)
God has made a beautiful world, and though it's in a fallen state, our hearts leap and listen when we intuitively see the wonder and beauty of art, in all its forms. It's our desire that, since God is thee great artist, and has gifted many of us to be as well, that we would seek to use art to its highest ideal - to reflect the Glory of God.

We get the term "Poiema" from Ephesians 2:10 that contains the word "workmanship" that comes from the greek word, "poiema" from which derives the english word, "poem", and means, "of the works of God as creator". How awesome is that! We all know that the poems we write are deep and intimate, and to think that (in Christ) WE are God's poem - God's work of art... is transcendently beautiful.

Poiema exists to reach hearts through the arts. Art has a way of cutting through our layers and straight to our hearts so we seek to use any medium we can; various dance styles, dramas, painting, etc. If you are interested in learning more let us know!
