Poiema (Creative Arts Ministry)

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
God has made a beautiful world, and though in a fallen state, our hearts leap and listen when we intuitively see the wonder and beauty of art, in all it's forms. It's our desire that, since God is a great artist, and has gifted many to be as well, that we would seek to use art to it's highest ideal - to reflect the Glory of God.

We get the term Poiema from Ephesians 2:10, which says, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." The greek word for 'workmanship' there is 'poiema' from which we get the word 'poem', and means, 'of the works of God as creator'. How awesome is that! We all know how intimate and deep poems can be that humans write - and to think that WE, in Christ, are God's poem, or work of art, is staggering.

Poiema exists to reach hearts through the arts, like hula, jazz dancing, drama skits, paintings, music, etc. We not only grow in our gifting together, but we also spend time to look to the Master artist, and what He would craft in us, that we may reach our neighbors, and the world.
