Friends of Maranatha Arts is an organization of Maranatha High School families and friends, committed to supporting and promoting Maranatha's Arts programs.
The Friends of Maranatha Arts is an auxiliary parent group. The purpose is to partner with the MHS Administration to promote and support Maranatha's Visual and Performing Arts. Friends of Maranatha Arts works directly with the Visual Arts faculty, the Directors of Drama, Music and Dance; Head of the Performing Arts Department, and the ComedySportz Club sponsor to accomplish this purpose. All MHS families are welcome to participate as Friends of Maranatha Arts and parents of students in the Arts are particularly encouraged to be involved members.

We invite you to partner with us in supporting our music, dance, theatrical, and visual arts programs by becoming a Patron of the Arts. The Friends of Maranatha Arts provides essential support to Maranatha's performing and visual arts programs by contributing financial resources and volunteers to ensure each student benefits from the highest caliber education and practical experience both in the classroom and on the stage. Our patron members benefit from timely communications about upcoming events and ways to be involved, are able to meet others with the same interests, receive voting rights for future FMA board officers, and are making a difference in Maranatha's arts programs.
