about the visual arts guild

The arts are a great way to: celebrate God's beautiful creation, shine the light of truth on injustice, and seek closer relationships with God.

The FBCD Visual Arts Guild believes that all people are made in the image of God - the Great Creator. We believe we can use our calling to the arts to support our church and it's missions, and to build and enhance connections with our local community.

The Visual Arts Guild supports diverse opportunities for art activities, ministries and missions at First Baptist Decatur including (but not limited to):

  • Exhibitions of paintings, photography and other visual arts by church members, youth, everyone who calls FBCD home, and the broader Decatur community;

  • Arts courses and outings;

  • Group Art Projects; and, most important,

  • Your creative ideas!

All art works will be placed for display with sensitivity to the mission and values of First Baptist Church of Decatur.
