Liturgical Arts Team

The Liturgical Arts Committee prepares the sanctuary for worship for each season of the church year. The décor reflects the mood of the church season, from somber anticipation for Advent and Lent to joy at Christmas and Easter. The members of the committee seek to engage the senses of the congregation and draw them in to reflect upon the meaning of the season using banners, fabric, art, flowers, and lighting.

The team works together to brainstorm ideas that enhance worship and implement them.  If you have a passion for design or decorating or are interested in contributing to this ministry, please contact Kathy Gaskamp at kathy.gaskamp@att.net.
