Website Launch: Anacostia Gracious Arts Program

Calling Christian Artists (and their supporters):

The Anacostia Gracious Arts Program (http://www.agapdc.org/) is an after-school ministry providing Christian fellowship through arts education for youth in inner-city Washington, DC. The website went active on Friday, October 15, and they are seeking prayer partners, volunteers and donors.

AGAP's Monday evening programs, at First Rock Baptist Church from 3:30-7:30, include dinner, homework help, Bible study, and art classes, including visual and performing arts. The students also participate in field trips, performances, and exhibitions.

"Our Mission is to unlock the heart of the city with the love of Christ, through the Arts. Our Vision is to call youth, as Christ's workmanship, to make life-giving choices that transform the city."

With art education diminished in many schools, AGAP is committed to artistic expression and education on account of "Jesus Christ and our belief that God allows us to praise Him through Art, to reflect His glory through Art, and to be functioning members of the body of Christ through Art. We view our students as God’s own artwork or “workmanship” that He created so deliberately, and we established AGAP so that our students could come to know Jesus and respond to Him in kind with artwork of their own."

Through the aid of the Holy Spirit, AGAP is a fruitful collaboration between First Rock Baptist Church, Southeast White House, Grace Presbyterian Church, and Immanuel Bible Church.
