Founded in 2010, Charis (KAR-is) Gallery, is located in the Sanctuary Building and spans the hallway west of the main lobby. The Welcome Center (off the hallway), accommodates multi-dimensional fine art in three glass cabinets. The Apostles Gallery is located in the opposite hallway. Kenneth Wyatt’s paintings of Jesus and His disciples (and Paul) are on permanent display. In the Dining Room of the Chapel Building you will find a growing collection of permanent art.
The name Charis is derived from a Greek word meaning favor or grace but is perhaps most accurately rendered by the concept of goodwill
