The Art of Faithfulness
The Art of Faithfulness is an intentional ministry to bring together the wide range of creative arts and faith. We believe that creative arts are a powerful pathway to:
- deepening our Christian faith,
- discovering aspects of God’s purpose for our lives,
- and serving the mission of Nassau Church.
We believe that the creative impulse is something we all share, given to us by God. Through The Art of Faithfulness, we will strive to provide creative opportunities for everyone of all ages and abilities (or creative spirit) to experience the powerful connection between creativity and faith.
Conference Room Art Shows
Nassau’s Conference Room is transformed each month into an art gallery by curator and church member Sue Rodgers. Artists from our own congregation, from the broader Princeton community, and beyond share their work with us from October through May.

In August, children, youth, and adults work together to prepare and present biblical musicals that serve as centerpieces to a worship service. Participants and Volunteers needed, contact Ingrid Ladendorf (email).
Children and Youth, rising grade three through high school are invited to take part in the staging of the gospel with energetic storytelling, singing, costumes, set and props! We will gather each afternoon August 7 – 11, 12:30 – 4:30 pm, to prepare a musical production which will then be offered in Worship on Sunday morning, August 13, 2023 at 10 am. Each afternoon offers Bible study, music and staging rehearsal, and a mission focus. Auditions take place mid-May, with full dress rehearsal on Friday evening, 6 – 8 pm. Join us – we have a role for you!
