Hi Rhonda!

I am new to Go Fish this year and we will be doing Praise also.  I am hoping to see more in the way of decoration ideas in the kit but my initial thought was the stage being extremely colorful and 'upward' focused.  This could run the gamut.  I'll look forward to seeing if you find something wonderful to share.

hi,

Our churchs first time for Go Fish too.  But I would like to do a BIG poster with the word PRAISE done in a grafitti like way, bright and colorful.    Then have a smaller one on another wall, and have the kids do their own messages, pictures, etc..  on it as they come in each night with markers and colors.

Great idea!

This is our church's first year with "The Go Fish Guys." I am totally excited about this year. Great idea about the sign and allowing the kids to sign! 

Thinking about making silhouettes - people dancing, playing strings, singing, people w/ arms lifted in praise.  If you google images - praise silhouettes, dance silhouettes, guitar silhouettes, etc.  there are a lot of choices.  I need  to make a large screen, shine a light on a cross silhouette surrounded by silhouettes lifting their hands in praise....I need suggestions on how to make the silhouette screen.

We might talk to church members about borrowing their instrument cases (guitar, violin, horn, etc) to make the sanctuary look more like the backstage of a show!  We are trying to come up with more ideas that are free/cheap!  I would love to hear more suggestions!

 

I want my silhouette to look something like this.  I need to build a frame, get help w/ colored lighting....I think this would look neat.

Here are my thoughts on what we are doing....I am going to get huge boxes from the furinture store and spray paint them black and do yellow for windows  and then using cardboard, I am going to make people figures for the entrance to the church.

Going to get black table covers and flick paint on them for a backgrop. Using cardboard again we are going to create a huge turntable Also ordering inflatable guitars to set around.

Outside we are going to use sidewalk chalk to write the memory verse everyday.

Also using footprints to go to the door.

i thought i read something in the directors notebook about a city-ish theme for decorations, so im gonna turn a wall in the main sanctuary a city line with a few pop out buildings, also some graffitii splahed all over them. theres a long hall way in our church that goes to our kids builing so im going to put some posters of DJ pray Z all in it with some disco posters n stuff i found at celebration station.

The kids building is where the bible study will be so im going to "try" and turn it into a firey furnace, a lions den, etc. on the days that were goin to be reading about that.

 

In the main sanctuary of our church is where were going to have the "concerts" and skits so i made huge cut out speakers ordered a concert background from oreiental trading and i am going to hang diso balls from the cieling (we have a low roof) cuz we have some of them crazy light things that will look cool reflecting on them.

 

we also have a lot of blow up guitars, mics, n stuff like that were going to place all over.

 

Its goona be fun!!

hope that gives you some ideas :-)

How do I get to this?  I have looked everywhere!

I made them :-) I found some pics that I like on google, and traced them using a projector. I went to a local hardware store and got some of that pink styofoam insulation that they use in houses, thats what i traced it on, them painted them. same thing with the buildings and the breakdancing boy. almost everything else i got from a party store
