Seeing stories brought to life on stage or screen reminds us that we all have a story that’s part of a bigger story. Theatre arts is used at FAC to help point us toward our Creator in the weekend services, while seasonal full-length special productions create great opportunities to invite the broader community to experience the arts in a welcoming church setting.
Auditions for “Woven”
FAC is seeking actors for a live theatre production of “Woven” by Adam Schnell for Easter 2024.
SYNOPSIS: “Woven” takes place in various towns and surrounding countryside in Israel such as Galilee, Cana, and Jerusalem in the three years leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. The main characters, Dinah and Shuli, are the wives of Peter and Andrew, and their husbands suddenly leave their livelihoods to follow this itinerant preacher from town to town. While Shuli is intrigued by Jesus’ message of love, inclusion, and freedom, Dinah is resistant to its disruptive and dangerous consequences to their lives, and she does not appreciate some of the new acquaintances thrust upon her, such as the wife of a tax collector and a known adulterer. The story largely focuses on her journey from fear and anger to acceptance, but Jesus’ redemptive effect is felt by all of them. Written and directed by Adam Schnell.

Visual Arts Gatherings
Come build relationships with other artists, improve your skills, be inspired, and contribute towards richer arts offerings at FAC (i.e. create art to beautify the Deerfoot Campus, be included in weekend services, and lead to worship)!
1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month
7:00-9:00 pm, North Atrium
FAC Deerfoot Campus
Some nights will be more structured and include teaching in various visual arts techniques, while others will be less structured with everyone bringing their own art project to work on. Contact Heather Laubenstein to get connected! (Artists must bring their own supplies.) This group will occasionally work towards a theme/gallery project, but none are planned yet for the spring.
Creative stage sets, graphic design, art exhibits, and permanent art installations invite us into worship or mark a significant moment in our journey together. We’d love to hear from you if you’re looking for opportunities to create at and for FAC!
