Meet the Creative Arts Community Council (CACC)!

CAC Monthly Newsletter

The Creative Arts Community Council (CACC) is now creating monthly newsletters to provide information on various events the CACC is producing as well as to highlight other opportunities to support the arts both within and outside of FirstMC. These newsletters will contain more information than what will be included in the Midweek Messenger.

The April newsletter was sent out on Friday, March 31. If you would like to receive our future newsletters to your email, you must opt-in by filling out the form below. If you would like to opt-out of receiving these newsletters, please contact Rachel Wilhelm.

In case you missed the April newsletter, you can check it out below! There are also copies available at church or you can download and print your own.


As we continue to develop this community, we want to know what your gifts, talents, and interests are in any artistic field. We also want to know if you might be interested in being involved with future projects or a part of new initiatives as we work to incorporate various arts into the life of FirstMC.

We are asking that everyone at FirstMC fill out this short survey. Please be sure to click on the red submit button once you have completed the form.

One of the new components of the Creative Arts Community is to allow for more of the many talented musicians within our congregation to share their gifts by providing live music near the Coffee Connection Café on Sundays starting at 10 AM beginning on March 12. We hope that you will make a habit to come to church early to enjoy the yummy drinks and treat, cherish the time of fellowship with one another, and savor the music.

Check out the line up we have!

The Gallery is opening on the north side of the Fellowship Hall with our first show called Resurrection/New Life. We are excited by the participation we received from artists of all ages with their original two and three-dimensional art. We hope you will stop by and see the show!

The show runs from Sunday, April 2 until Sunday, April 16.

Here is a sneak peek of our first show!
