Sacred Tapestry

Sacred Tapestry


The mission of the church is to reach people in the community who would benefit from an alternative experience of Christianity. The church does this mainly through hospitality and by offering a worship experience that is not bounded by traditional forms of expression that often have alienated people.


Sacred Tapestry opened about a decade ago in a store front located in East Cobb. The church is situated between a Chiropracter's office and a Fitness Center. The church is a warm, open, accepting, non-judgemental community that accepts everyone. The sanctuary is casual and comfortable. A fountain serves as the Baptismal font. The altar is between the font and the brunch table. The Sunday experience begins with brunch.

Meeting the Five Areas of Ministry

Administration: The student will have access to the Administrative Council meetings. The student will also work with the pastor in visioning for the church and understanding systems of process.

Liturgy (Worship and Preaching): The student may serve in occasional preaching, drama, liturgical dance, and spoken word.

Mission and Outreach: It is important to Sacred Tapestry that the student be a presence to the youth in the community and local schools.

Pastoral Calling and Congregational Care: The student will have direct access to accompany the pastor on hospital visits and emergencies.

Teaching: Sacred Tapestry engages difficult questions with the Biblical Text and cultural realities.
