More and more in today’s Christian church, faith and art go together! At Oak Park Avenue Church, we are moved by a life-changing passion for Christ, but we also have a passion for artistic expression.
Art has the power to translate emotions and intellect into form, the power to express personal and community beliefs and value through concrete symbols, and the power to transform.
Art has become an important part of OPA. Art classes, community murals, and photography outings are examples of what we have been doing at OPA.
We have sought to integrate our creativity and our personal lives and see how God moves us in a creative work. It is combining passion of faith and art together. We celebrate the success and completion in a way to publicly recognize and solidify the new art that has been created.
