This is what the stage looked like... oh, but wait that is from behind!
Worship Set 1
Up until now, the team that implements the creative element staging and experiential designs has been called pPod. It just sort of named itself in the beginning. But, I’ve been trying to think of a more descriptive term, that people would better understand. Trust me, it is hard to explain the whole idea behind how we got the name pPod.
So the name has changed. But, the concept of what we do hasn’t changed.
ENHANCE (vision)…entice the skeptic, challenge the lukewarm and ignite passion in the believer (to go into the world)…
I found Andrew one day while cruising through some pictures of stage/set designs on flickr. Encouraged him to blog. His designs are totally sick. Also invited him to join creative fuZion, and flickr creative elements deisgn WAREHOUSE lab.
Well, he just posted his submission for creative fuZion this week.
I love the way God works.
We've been working on a series coming up in March, which is going over various areas of our lives that we need to submit to Christ.
I vaguely remembered a video I had seen about some sort of non-marriage commitment in bed which I thought was funny. Two of us searched diligently all over the place, for two weeks to try to find it.
Then tonight I was participating in Sunday Set List blog carnival at Fred McKinno's blog like I do every week, and one of the first links I followed Chris Moncus was sharing about attending lifechurch.tv (online) today. I just 'happened' to see another video he posted from lifechurch.tv ( a very funny series on Satan) which I had seen before, then I thought wait...that's where I saw it on lifechurch.tv.
Well, here is the video. Jus tposted it on our basecamp. Whew! Yippee!
Thanks guys. Thank you God!
There are hundreds of pieces that fuZe together to create the worship experience on Sunday morning. This weekend you will explore how you personally can be involved in the design of these elements. From the worship team, lights and sound to the set design team called ENTICE you can step in and experience what is like to serve on one of our creative teams.
ENTICE Hands-on Breakout Sessions:
ENTICE team creates the experiential elements and stage designs.
During ENTICE you will craft an authentic experiential (interactive) worship element. This element is a fuZion of ancient/modern worship. We will create the entire experience from the design of the element - all the way through the implementation on Sunday morning.
Friday evening: Worship and Intro
Saturday morning: How We Design
Saturday afternoon: Hands on Creation
Saturday evenig: Go home and rest
Sunday morning (early): Putting it All Together
The cost is $75.00 (which includes lodging, breakfast and lunch on Saturday).
Please RSVP to email@example.com.
This image was found at Flickr: Shared Worship Background Graphics group. You have to weed through a lot of stuff, but there is some really nice work that is open for sharing. These images were created by kennylovesbetsy's.
This week the images will be put in a computer program that will "cut up" the image and then blow it up and we'll printed out. Then we will attach the image it to the boxes.
Each week the appropriate boxes will be on stage for the pastor to interact with.
Hope this makes sense.
What elements are you creating or dreaming about this week?
"There was a 20 yr old girl in the service and today was her first day ever in church.
She has never been to church before in her life.
Well, she was so moved by the creative element that she has started asking questions about God to the family that she came to XC with.
This is why we do what we do..."
so difficult to define
yet it is a it's a very specific moment in time...
that catch in the throat
that moment of connection between what is happening on stage and the the breaking down of the forth wall...
Do you feel it?
