The Studio is a new site of Audubon Park in Spokane's West Central neighborhood. Under the leadership of Pastor Katy, the Studio seeks to make meaning of God's stories, make beautiful our lives, and make sacred our world. Like our partner congregation, we extend a special welcome to non-het-cis people, people of color, people in recovery, people with a history, immigrants, people with doubts and questions, people in poverty, people with mental illness, people with disabilities, and to any person who has ever felt alienated by the church.
The Studio is committed to an ethic of relentless re-interpretation. We constantly negotiate with tradition in our liturgies; every worship experience is an experiment in making meaning, a wildly provocative statement on God's presence in our lives, and a collective art project seeking to reconstruct the world in the image of grace. We worship with discordant music, spoken word poetry, stand up comedy, round-table conversation, dramas, live art, mindfulness meditation, and Communion. Sometimes we even worship with swear words. Always we are seeking to make space for a transformative encounter with the Holy Spirit, the rogue-ist artist of them all.
