As someone who enjoys people-watching, I (Daniel Riemenschneider) have recently made it a point to greet people as they walk to the sanctuary through the newly re-painted walls in the portico hallway. The hallway looks different and I was curious what people would say.
The most repeated comment:“Where did all the pictures go?”
I was encouraged. You see the people who attend our church love to see the people in our church. We are a “people church,” and when we took down pictures of people, they noticed.
I share this story, because for the last year, our Creative Collective team has been working on this hallway project. Not just to update colors or de-clutter things, but to find a fresh way to highlight what we care about as a church: people.
Do you enjoy creative things like photography, graphic design, film, coding, and interior design? You may enjoy joining our collective of creatives. We meet at least every fourth Monday at 7:30-9pm in the Coffeehouse (onsite) or at JET advertising (121 Fairfield Way #100, Bloomingdale). Upcoming dates include: Feb 15, Mar 14, Apr 11, May 9.
