The Art Ministry was started in 1991 with a handful of artists from Cypress Creek Christian Church and surrounding community meeting once a week for three hours to share in their joy of painting. Within three years, it had grown to having two groups meeting five hours a day and also a night group that meets for three hours once a week.
The artists who paint together range from beginners to professionals and represent many different religions and walks of life. Meeting at the Community Center made a difference. There is a positive encouraging atmosphere that has created bonds of caring and friendship that go way beyond the process of painting. New people are always welcomed as the Ministry changes from year to year. The Art Ministry is a joy!
Our Art Ministry has had an Art Show for the last 13 years every spring, the main idea is to show off all the work created that year by our artists, yes we sell art too but the most important thing is to showcase our artists. When Harvey hit we were so sad the church sustained such terrible damage but we were adopted by John Wesley Methodist Church and we went and painted there for over a year. When we were given the all-clear to come back and paint at Cypress Creek again we were overjoyed to be home!!
