Creative Arts Ministry (CAM)

“Let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds and praise your father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:16 

The purpose of the Creative Arts Ministry (CAM) is to encourage and enable the disciples of Hosanna to use and develop the gifts that our Lord has given them, for the good of all.

There are variety of ways in which disciples can express the gifts of God. The Hosanna Arts Gallery can accommodate a wide variety of art. In addition, kids’ classes are offered monthly, and students have the opportunity to share their work.  If you are a reader, the book club reviews literature and enjoys good conversation each month.

Hosanna Art Gallery:


Come see the art display at Hosanna!

Current theme:  
“Joy in the Journey”

Hosanna is now showcasing works of art, inspired by the Word of God. Enjoy Hosanna disciples and friends’ God-given talents as displayed in the art gallery!


Would you consider sharing in the art gallery?

The upcoming theme “Renew, Refuse & Recycle.” Design or share an already-created piece that reflects the theme. Keep in mind that not all art is flat. Consider your sculptures, welding, wood carvings, pottery…we have display cases and pedestals for showing those. Think 3-D!

Please submit your artwork to the Hosanna art closet in late January 2018.


For future shows, if you would like to share your art work,  use any medium you prefer. Please label your ‘display-ready’ art on the back:  name, #, title, and medium and bring it to the Hosanna office.  (Check out the art rack for guidelines &  finishing touches.)
