christmas at evcc

Phil and I (along with a bunch of other people) helped decorate our church a few weeks ago. I wanted to document it because some of it I made. . . like this pretty gold banner. I was very adament that we needed a Nativity somewhere, because if there's ever a place to express the birth of Christ in Nativity form, it's at church. The one that was purchased was a little bit smaller than I imagined for this space, but it's nice. The wall behind it, however, was clearly lacking in all its light beige-ness, so I whipped up a little sparkly gold lettered banner.
I also created this silhouette Nativity for the bulletin board outside the fellowship hall. It was based off an art project I did with several of my classes in year's past. That project was a much simpler barn outline, Mary, Joseph, and Jesus in the manger. The scene I got from google images had the donkey and palm trees. My trees look a little funky, and I'm just now realizing that I totally forgot the star. Oh well, there's always next year.
I spend a lot of time over here in this little corner of the sanctuary. And our two trees now have red and gold ornaments. In all the eight years we've been attending, these trees have only had white lights. The gold and red glitter add just the right amount of sparkle.
The last several years, we've purchased pointsettias in memory of Phil's mom and dad. We didn't get a flower this year, but we bought the two boxes of ornaments for these two trees.

In loving memory of Rev. Clifford & Dewyone (Devy) Bergland
