Every summer at Park Church, we spend several weeks in the Psalms. The Psalms give us a vocabulary and a “hymnal” for relating to God through the full range of human experience and emotion, ultimately pointing us to Jesus.

CHRIST IN THE PSALMS 2024: 140–150

We're in our thirteenth summer of "Christ in the Psalms." This year will take us from Psalm 140 to Psalm 150. Next summer we'll be back to Psalm 1!

Psalms Artwork Series

Starting in Psalm 41, artists within our community have done a piece of artwork for each week's Psalm. There's been a lot of wonderful, stirring work over the years, and we've cataloged them here (save for during a tragically undermanned 2023), each with a write-up from the artist.

Series Artwork

Jacob Boyles, 2019

In 2019, we had the opportunity to work with an artist named Jacob Boyles to re-think our series artwork for Christ in the Psalms. The previous Christ in the Psalms artwork—calligraphy and mixed-media by Park Church alumni Meagan Tidwell—had been used lovingly since 2014.

Frequently throughout the Psalms, Jesus is prophesied of, alluded to, longed for, and adored. To create the central image of the series (see above), we chose fifteen symbols from the Psalms that refer to Jesus, narrowed them down to ten, and gave them to Jacob to create in one of his distinctive styles, "monoline" illustration.

To create the two banners that hang on either side of the stage (see above), imagery was used from Psalm 1 and Psalm 150, the rhetorical "bookends" of the Psalter. This artwork will take us through the end of this summer (and the end of the book!) before we return to Psalm 1 with a new artistic perspective in 2025.
