Short Film Team – Video Editors

By Nate Kugel on October 16, 2017

We believe God has gifted all of us to serve in someway to encourage the body of Christ (aka. the Church). You might be surprised that the part you play best could be a great need for our church–take your MyFit Questionaire (click here) to find out.

A growing need in our church is the individuals interested in learning or are knowledgable in filming and video editing. Video making requires an artistic eye for detail while being a good story-teller. We are putting together a team to meet the needs for program promotion and visual story-telling.
In 2015, our film team pulled off our largest project yet, with 15+ actors and 5 camera men. Click here: “Life Saving Station.”

Time requirements–Simply attend one meeting every other month, as well as the time spent working on the unique projects.

Fill out the MyFit form and say ‘hi’ to Nate Kugel, the film team staff coordinator:

Creatives Who Collaborate (in a Church)

By Daniel Riem on September 20, 2016

It quite possibly might have only worked because it was within the scope of a church.

I’m talking about the recently completed “Portico Entrance Hallway Project.”

Over a year ago, the Creative Collective group began developing ideas to redesign the hallway space.  As we gathered month-to-month, we began to realize an important value of our church: we love pictures of people. We are a “people church,” after all.  How we would go about designing this, however, took a lot of collaboration.

Our finalized project is five 36″x36″ plexiglass frames.  Each frame highlights one of our five mission statement themes: Worship, Praying, Learning, Caring, Outreaching. It features a large-format “hero” shot and three mid-sized photos.  (We are excited about how easy it will be to trade in new photos.)

While we are really glad this project is finally completed, we are grateful for the friendship and work we got to do together. The team included: Marsha B, Dorene B, Keir C, Lou & Louie G, Bill & Denise M, Daniel R, Connie S, Kevin & Toshiba T, Jason T, Vince T, David V, Adrian W.
