Ministry Kickoff Party: School Theme
Call Me Martha. She has SUCH cute ideas, and her attention to detail is amazing. . .
We have a great theme for the marriage ministry in which we co-lead this year: Wisdom! We will be going through the wisdom books of Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon.
We hold a huge kickoff party at our first meeting, which is September 13th, and I am helping our activities lead to decorate the room in a school/learning theme. We know that knowledge and wisdom are different (one is knowing the facts and one is the application of the facts), but we plan on making that distinction clear with a lot of the decor details and Bible verses.
The group is big--we will be decorating for about 250 people, but we have a new, beautiful, window lined room for the year. I can't wait to see how it all looks.
I want to keep the decor a surprise until the event, but I'm having fun planning. Have you ever thrown a school themed party? I'd love any fun ideas or suggestions! The centerpieces are finalized, but we are still working on the rest.
