Several Art Worship Stations

When I set up a multi-station worship gathering I try to incorporate some sort of drawing element. Normally I place a large sheet of paper on the wall and let worshipers add their picture to the wall. This adds a communal aspect to this very personal worship time. As people continue to draw the wall becomes a mural of praise.

I try to vary the drawing wall to meet the theme of the evening so I have used several variations on that similar theme. Here are a couple of them that I have used in the past.

 

CLEAN

Materials Needed: Art materials (markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc)

Set up: Place a large sheet of paper on the wall. Tape the instructions to the wall in several locations. Place the art supplies near by. (Tips: People can sit and draw better than they can stand on their tiptoes to draw so place your paper at a lower height. Also having multiple locations for art supplies or individual packages of crayons or markers will help multiple people participate at once)

The Text: Read Psalm 51:1-10 [Note: you may want to print this passage and place it on the wall as well]. David came face to face with his sin and knew that His only hope was for God to make him clean. What about you? Do you need to be washed clean by God tonight?

Spend a moment confessing your sin and asking, like David did, for God’s cleansing. Once you have finished use the material provided to draw a picture about how it feels to be CLEAN.

 

GOD IS…

Materials Needed: Art materials (markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc)

Set up: Place a large sheet of paper on the wall. Tape the instructions to the wall in several locations. Place the art suplies near by. (Tips: People can sit and draw better than they can stand on their tiptoes to draw so place your paper at a lower height. Also having multiple locations for art supplies or individual packages of crayons or markers will help multiple people participate at once)

The Text: Take a few minutes and think about how many ways you can complete the sentence. “God is…” Then use the materials provided to come up with a picture that expresses one of the ways that you thought about. If you would rather you can write a list of words or a paragraph instead of a drawing.

 

CREATOR KING 

Materials Needed: Art materials (markers, crayons, colored pencils, etc)

Set up: Place a large sheet of paper on the wall. Tape the instructions to the wall in several locations. Place the art supplies near by. (Tips: People can sit and draw better than they can stand on their tiptoes to draw so place your paper at a lower height. Also having multiple locations for art supplies or individual packages of crayons or markers will help multiple people participate at once)

The Text:   In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. [2] Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. [4] God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. Genesis 1:1-5 (NIV)

When we are trying to find our path it is important to remember who the God of the universe really is. He isn’t just powerful and mighty, he is also creator. He made all that we see and know. Why shouldn’t we trust him with our lives?

Nature’s amazing goodness reminds us of God’s power and his faithfulness to his children. Take a few moments and draw a picture representing something in nature. Then write about how that piece of God’s creation reminds you that God will guide you.
