Music and Fine Arts

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.

Currently Featured Artis

J. Scott Kelly is our featured artist as of October 2018. Since 1985, full-time professional photographer, J. Scott Kelly has had the privilege of traveling the world, capturing inspired images and priceless memories for his clients. A native Floridian, Scott grew up on the beaches of South Florida, where he was able to master his photography skills taking advantage of the abundant tropical scenery and warm climate.

After years of apprenticeship and study, and after graduating from ‘Florida Institute of Technology in 1985 with an honors degree in Photographic Technology, he established the very successful Island Images Professional Photography Studio.  Since that time, he has provided his commercial, wedding and portrait clients with creativity, quality and service.  It has been with those clients that Scott has been commissioned to travel all over the United Sates, as well as to Greece, Finland, China, Curacao, Grand Cayman, Costa Rica, Mexico and The Bahamas, photographing their corporate events, weddings, and portraits.  In his travels, Scott has also had many opportunities to take ‘the road less traveled’ in other to capture not only the beautiful unspoiled scenic vistas, but also the essence of the people and culture, resulting in award-winning images.

Scott’s dedication to giving his clients the best no matter what it takes, continues to motivate him.  In addition, for the past 7 years Scott has been the north area representative for the Florida Camera Club Council and is passionate about sharing his knowledge of photography with photo enthusiasts through various levels of photographic workshops and photo walks.  “Helping people discover their own talent, style and potential is very rewarding.”  Scott is also the owner of Island Images/Gallery of Hope, a contemporary photographic art gallery dedicated to photographic education, as well as the exposure of emerging and established local, national and international photographic artists and their works. 

Combining his love of travel, his extensive photographic experience, as well as his sense of adventure, Scott is eager to share his knowledge with others who share the same passion.  More than just another photographer with a camera and an eagerness to travel – he has the care and commitment to help you obtain great photographs and a travel experience you won’t soon forget.  Scott’s creative eye and exceptional talent has made him one of the area’s most sought after professional photographers.
