The purpose of PASSAGE is to provide a way through (a passage) for celebrating artists’ contributions to the community through creating images that are a response to God, a reflection of his beauty, or meditations that are a blessing to the community. We desire to foster creativity among our congregation and to reach out to Manatee county through the arts. We seek to bring hope and renewal to both those who want to use their artistic and creative gifts and those who love truth and beauty.

Our Goals

  • Learn to better appreciate the artists as a member of the community
  • Support the artist and the art lover by providing space to show and enjoy art
  • Deepen our relationships with Manatee County Schools by exhibiting art by students and teachers

PASSAGE first exhibited work in March 2018 with an exhibit from Ballard Elementary, a ministry partner.
