Poiema

Poiema (Creative Arts Ministry)

"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
"Reaching hearts through the arts."  -Lois

Poiema is led by Lois Clay and meets on Saturday mornings to rehearse. Anyone interested needs to first sign-up.
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 its 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, in Christ, we are God's poem - God's work of art. Beautiful.

Poiema exists to reach hearts through the arts. We desire to use any medium whether it be dance, dramas, 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, as we reach our neighbors, and the world - through the arts.
