Pinterest is a great way to save inspiration and ideas from around the web - from home decor to dinner recipes, gift ideas to inspiring quotes, holiday celebrations to weddings to design inspiration. I love the visual pin-board look of the site, the ability to add captions (e.g. notes to self), and the embedded links for easy access later. In addition to personal inspiration, though, I've found Pinterest to be a great source for teaching resources and business advice. I've also started collecting some of my favorite tools, ideas, and resources for church musicians and children's choir directors (see here and here).
Pinterest is one of the first places I look for visual inspiration, especially when it comes to worship planning and design.
What have other churches done?
How do other congregations celebrate these seasons?
How can we incorporate more visual art into our services?
Simply type your search terms into the box and sort by pins, pinners, or boards.
Here are a few of my new favorite boards for worship planning and design inspiration:
1 | If your church hangs liturgical banners throughout the year, you'll love this board - a curated selection of beautiful banner designs. See it here.
2 | This board is full of visual inspiration - from artwork to colorful streamers, flower arrangements to liturgical banners. I love the idea of bringing all these elements together in worship. See the board here.
3 | I love the design inspiration on this board, especially the prayer station resources and prayer visuals. It also includes a few creative banner ideas and visuals - I love the ribbon streamers! See the board here.
4 | Looking for some graphic design inspiration? This board might be my new favorite. I love this collection of clean logos, typography, graphic elements, and church branding inspiration. See it here.
5 | I love finding new and creative ways to incorporate art and design in worship services. This board has inspirational, colorful ideas for streamers, banners, and visual displays. See it here.
I recently started my own board to save my favorite worship planning and design resources, and collect inspiration, ideas, and tutorials. Follow along here.
