Music and Fine Arts Ministry
Music and the fine arts are at the core of Community Church’s celebration of God and its spiritual life. Both reflect the order, beauty and diversity of God’s creation. Praising God through music and art is one of our most popular and celebrated forms of ministry at Community Church.
Different voices, instruments, musical styles and arrangements are blended by our staff, volunteer and professional choirs, musicians into a vital, living, and unified reflection of God’s work.
Music and art confirms that the gospel is as relevant today as it was centuries ago. Old and new Hymns tell the biblical story and teach the nature of God from other cultures, languages and eras.

C3 Music & Fine Arts Camp
Since 2018, guided by God's call to nurture and educate every child in our care, we've held the C3 Music & Fine Arts Camp annually for K-5 students in the last week of July, with registration opening in May. The camp merges daily Bible-themed stories and lessons with fine arts workshops like ceramics, painting, mixed media, singing, tone chimes, and dance. In 2021, a mission element was integrated, urging campers to embody the values learned from our daily Bible teachings. A week of intensive learning from professional instructors and volunteers culminates in a family presentation, with a gallery show and Sunday worship participation by the campers. For more reach out to camp director, Rachel Carter Murphy at 772-469-2320.

The series is named for Teryl Townsend Viner who served Community Church as a Deacon and as a member of its Board of Music and Fine Arts. A gifted painter, Teryl is listed in” Who’s Who of American Art”. In 2012 she was commissioned to create a painting for the church’s newly renovated chapel. You can view her work, Reflection, in the Narthex of Grace Chapel.
