JAM starting up in September
Jackson Arts Ministry, also known as JAM, is an arts-based ministry at Jackson Church. We cover a wide variety of the arts with different classes being held every Spring and Fall season. A significant emphasis on Christian faith is embedded throughout the program in both content and friendships. Some of the offerings coming up are:

We hold auditions to help cast the play, but don’t worry – everyone who auditions gets a part. Auditions will be Sept.12 between 3:00-5:30pm at Jackson Church. You can come at any time, each individual audition should only take 5-10 minutes. Check out our audition page for more information at https://jacksonam.org/product/performing-arts/.
