About the Community of WELS Creatives
There was a group of people who were passionate about using their God-given creativity in service to the church. Those people helped make the Hearts & Hands Workshop happen. It was there that we all found our tribe.
The WELS is filled with talented and creative artists who are looking for ways to integrate their art into worship. The Community of WELS Creatives exists to provide ways for these people to connect, encourage, and collaborate with each other. Want to be a part of it? Great, you already are. Welcome to the Community.
About the Hearts & Hands Workshop
The Hearts & Hands Workshop is a three-day workshopping event for artists, worship leaders, and pastors seeking to integrate creativity and art into worship settings, specializing on discussions on the following topics:
• visual arts | creating original works of art to edify Christian worship
• musical arts | from creating new songs or song settings to accompaniment in Christian Worship
• technology | the use of lighting, video, and creative tech in Christian Worship
• modern rites | being creative within the Lutheran liturgical tradition, such as the use of ordinaries and confessions & absolution
The next Hearts & Hands Workshop will be held at St. Croix Lutheran Academy in West St. Paul, MN from June 18-20, 2019. Register here.
