(Belated Post) Advent at Vintage 21

I love that our church has a design team, that our God is a creative god, and that I have the opportunity to serve with the gifts He's given me! For the Advent season, the design team worked to incorporate our version of Christmas decorations, to tie in with the sermon series and help visitors feel welcome. A few pictures I snapped in the sanctuary are shown below.

This idea started with Christmas stories that often begin with ornate drop caps. (For inspiring daily drop caps, click here.) As we worked through the concept, we settled on using the text of the scripture to create the words peace, joy, hope, and love.

We wanted the design to be interactive and to encourage others to remember the life of Christ by loving others, just as He did. The "Christmas tree" served as a drop off for cans of food, to be donated to those in need. Words that speak of the spirit of the season emanate from the communion stations.

The lobby functions as an art gallery each month; photographers in the church took pictures to illustrate the words used in the series.

Acrylic letters surround our painting of the Raleigh skyline.

What a beautiful season it was!
