Alex Parsley from Asbury United Methodist Church in Madison, AL brings us this massive wall of pallets for their series on Acts.
Alex and her team found some interesting wood pallets for $1 a piece. They were quite different than the standard pallet, which she liked, and they were so versatile that she knew they could use them for future projects as well. They bought 40 of them and built a 4 high x 8 wide grid and two stand alone towers that were 1 wide x 8 high. They used 2 x 4s and ¼ inch plywood for assembly and support. Floor LED’s uplit the wall from the front to add dimension.
Then, to bring focus to the highlighted spiritual gifts from their series, Alex painted a sign for each adjective and added a new word to the wall every week. The signs were painted on ¼ inch plywood. With Acts 2 in mind, they also wanted a way to express how the Holy Spirit came like a fire to rest on the people, fill and enable them. So, they put an “eternal flame” fire pit center stage and a candle under each word on the wall. So, that in accordance with the message each gift (candle) was empowered (lit) by the flame of the Holy Spirit. They spent under $500 on the entire set for a 9-week series.
