As we mentioned before, we'll focus on what we need to do, what we can do now, and what we may be able to do (later, after some money is raised.) We have the authority to go ahead and make changes , primarily to the Fellowship areas, the signage, and the entryways, then the Prayer Garden, and if in play, have input on a new awning/entry area.
The goals are to update the styles-- which I think we agreed needs to remain true to the overall modern style and clean lines of the church architecture, while incorporating pieces of the old church and necessary art pieces in a hipper. eclectic way. The style I think can be modern while being staying ecclesiastic (respectful and churchlike rather than trendy or industrial.) Goals are to have a warmer, inviting, friendlier feel with better lighting, colors and textures, signage, purposeful furniture, and inspiring expressive focal points. Also to make it functional for more uses, like Koinonia, information awareness, welcome station. For Jesus.
Under each of these posts, I'm hoping that each of us can chime in with comments, and maybe links to examples or pics that less us discuss the subject under each heading. Anyway, we'll see how it works.
