Christmas outreach marketing

We're blessed to have a fabulously creative graphic designer who is willing to offer up his gifts to help with church outreach. He's designed beautiful poster that incorporates the water tower and defunct factory buildings located just down the street from the church. We're going to use this as a banner and postcards as well as posters that will be put up around the neighborhood.

That is a beautiful and tasteful design. I also like the fact that it depicts a "local scene." That just says "we're about community" to me.

Will this be a candlelight service? I love candlelight services, personally.

Yes, it'll be a candlelight service, but not quite the full-blown kind we used to have before we had a bunch of kids around. Last year we ran into the problem of having some kids almost set the place on fire...so we're going to tone it down a bit - have the candles up front and not on each pew.

I'm really glad you like the design. The fellow who developed it did a really great job. His philosophy is to keep everything as local as possible.

Yes, I can see where a change was in order. While I think that a bonfire makes a nice addition the the Christmas season, using the church building as the site (and fuel) of such a fire would be unwise. ;)

Well, I think the gentleman's philosophy works on several levels on this time. For starters, I think it's a nice change from the more typical idyllic nativity scene. While there's nothing wrong with a nativity scene, they often give the me the sense of Christmas a bit too..."other-worldly." I think it's nice to be reminded that Christmas is for the world we live in, too.

Fabulous poster....brings the reality fairly and squarly home.
And please may we borrow some of your pyromaniac kids...we could do with drastic action on our church building, and particularly the pews!
