life rhythm: CELL, CELEBRATION & CALL - a ginghamsburg worship series

ginghamsburg's mission statemen:
bring seeking people into a life-CELEBRATION of jesus
grow in cell COMMUNITY
serve out of our CALL and giftedness.

this year our fall stewardship series didn't quite reach into advent so we created a mini 3-week series on the DNA of ginghamsburg, a rediscovery of our life rhythm of CELL, CELEBRATION and CALL. the slideshow describes the actual materials and project of the main campus worship area space design for this series.

heritage/prayer room at the Fort

our fort mckinley campus church came to us complete with 100 years of rich history and all the hundreds of photos to prove it. we'd been able to repurpose the wood salvaged from the stage/chancel area of the sanctuary as wainscoting in that room. a new color scheme and vine/burnished metal light fixtures served to enhance the leaded glass windows and we began to see the potential for a "wall of faith" - a creative display of the key photos from the fort's 100 years of history. we purchased and painted squares of drywall, then made sepia copies of all the photos chosen for the project. matching all the photos into the same sepia color scheme was the key to a cohesively designed look. we arranged them in chronological order onto eight drywall squares with room on the 8th for good things yet to come. the "bling" of the project was the use of small pieces of wood trim - salvaged and a few purchased pieces- painted to match the wood and add some visual appeal to the overall display. seeing the legacy of God's work is always cool - but we believe the best is yet to come!

LAUGHLINES worship area design

LAUGHLINES was our september message series - a response to the failing economy and our collective need to lighten up a bit and enjoy the gifts God's given. we wanted to go for a comedy club look so we purchased brickboard paneling and decopaged large posters to the cut out paneling pieces - dried and sanded to imitate the look of old painted brick.

along with the hanging brickboard posters we invited our ginghamsburg artists to create canvas paintings in the same color scheme - paintings that depicted laughter and joy in some way. take a look at the results of this worship area design.
