creative fuZion lab //19// simply packaged styling...

Welcome to "creative fuZion lab" at designing for Philistines (on Thursdays)...
This is the blog kingdom where freaky creatives are able to share the chaos created in their minds for THE Kingdom.
This is the place to share whatever creative element you are using in your weekend service or just something you have been dreaming about. Come and see what others are doing, come and share what you are doing. Let's spark each other's creativity...
So here’s what you do…
1. Each Thursday YOU post on your blog on whatever creative church element sparks your passion.
2. In your blog, link back to this weeks specific creative fuZion lab.
3. Then post the link to your particular post at the NEW Mr. Linky below.
4. Then come back and comment. If you don’t blog yet, still feel free to share your idea in the comments.
5. Then off you go. Go visit other people’s ideas, comment and share.
6. Ready to begin? Here we go. Let the creative fuZion begin.
Spread the Word.

This week "Simply Packaged" idea: Styling the stage with cloth...

Next, my family has asked me to stop climbing on ladders. Several things have happened to me recently and they are concerned for my safety. So this adds a new dimension for planning the stage designs. Either not hang cloth or have someone else climbing the ladders. I've been asking God what He thinks I should do now...
This idea hit me a few weekends ago. We opened the back curtains. Then attached cloth (with safety pins) on the the rope (that opens and closes the curtains) and then closed the curtains, which raise the cloth up like a flag on a flag pole. It took a couple of times to get the placement correct, but it worked extremely well. The pictures of this week are the ones with the red satin cloth.
Then we stretched the cloth across the stage and I had a tall person simply safety pin the other end of the cloth as high up as he could reach.
That's it.

Our creative elements this week was a video that parodies a Swiffer comercial. We are refocusing on the simple things. This week was "love God".

Again, our media team (and drama team) hit it out of the park. I can't say it enough. They are mad creative.

Last but not least, over the last three weeks of utilizing our prayer wall, we've had about 200 prayer requests come in. Cool, huh?

So, now take time and tell me about where your creative juices are flowing.
Here is Mr. Linky...
