2008 New England Christian Arts Festival

For the past 6 years, Vicki Norris, and others from our fellowship have participated in the New England Christian arts festival that’s held each year in our area. Vicki would like to invite you to join us at Windham High School on Friday June 27th (Margaret Becker is in concert) and Saturday June 28th. Please be in prayer about this event. Many artists are traveling and donating their time to be in our neck of the woods. If you have further questions or are able to help volunteer, please email victoria@victoriajamesmusic.com to let Vicki know.

Participating this year are four time Grammy nominated, Dove Award winner Margaret Becker, Nashville; dancer Stephanie Powell, retired of Alvin Ailey, NYC: dancer Jasmine Bates, lead choreographer under Bishop T.J. Jakes, CA: musicians The Warrior Poetes, KY; photographer Emile Ibrahim, founder of Arts for Christ, Cairo; rap sensation Lamar, Boston; Maine Poet Laureate Betsy Scholl; and others.In the beginning, God created… Genesis 1:1. God is the Creator, and he calls us to be creative. I will praise you with all my heart; I will tell of your wonders. Psalm 9:1. This festival passionately honors God and Jesus Christ through contemporary artistic expression. It is not a religious service. It is a Holy Spirit inspired creative explosion.

  1. I’ve gotten to meet some really awesome folks each year. I’m amazed at the beauty of the dancers, the energy of the music, and the network of churches involved. I am blessed each time! God is good…all the time.

    “Praise the LORD.
    Praise God in his sanctuary;
    praise him in his mighty heavens.
    Praise him for his acts of power;
    praise him for his surpassing greatness.
    Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
    praise him with the harp and lyre,
    praise him with tamborine and dancing,
    praise him with the strings and flute,
    praise him with the clash of cymbals,
    praise him with resounding cymbals.
    Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.
    Praise the LORD.”
    Psalm 150
