Creative Ministries

Let’s get creative!

One of the first things God did in relationship to humanity was create – and look at how creative God’s creation was (and is). You are created to create, too. Within you is the ability to be creative.

The Creative Ministries at FUMC has lots of ways you can get those creative juices flowing for the glory of God.

Our magic ministry shares Christian messages through the art of illusion. If you’ve ever wanted to be a magician or even an assistant, come join us! Age 15 or older (younger by special arrangement). Learn more here. 
We’re not talking sock puppets. Virtuous Reality Puppets is a black light theater team that shares the Good News through puppetry and blacklight techniques. They perform at churches, festivals and conferences. Persons who are 10 or older may participate. Learn more here.

Right around the corner is the Lancaster Holiday parade. We want to make a big impression in the parade and so we need lots of people to fill the costumes and walk the parade route. A sign-up sheet is in the Parlor.


Clowning reaches out with the Gospel in ways and places that other methods can’t. Clowns let others know they are loved and that they make a difference. Clowning is a fun way to serve others. Persons sixteen years or older are encouraged to find the clown inside of them. Join the fun! They participate in parades, perform programs for children and adults at churches, festivals, etc.
Visual Arts & Video
If you have artistic skills or a good eye for decorating, videotaping or editing, there are many ways you can get involved at the church. Set designs, painting, room decor/design, bulletin board displays, costuming, banners, stoles and more! A very flexible ministry allows you the freedom to be as involved as you would like.


Creative Ministry News:

Our Nativity Display at Crossroads goes up Friday, Nov. 19th at 6 p.m., and Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. (each day until we are ready to call it a day). Help whenever you can. No pressure to commit the whole time.

If you’d like to be a host for any Nativity nights (every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday in December), we would love your help also. Contact John Coen for details,740-653-3330.

We also need donations of cookies to serve at the festival. You can drop them off at the church that Sunday morning or at Crossroads (when you bring your nativities to display :). )


Register your OWN Nativities for the Nativity Festival, happening November 28th at Crossroads, from 6-8:30 p.m. Help us bring in the season of Advent with this outreach event. (Then, you’ll have your nativities out to place in your homes for the advent season!) Registration forms are available at the church and Crossroads.
