Vitals: GHCC Winter Camp 2017

This year's theme for Golden Hills Winter Camp was Vitals, with a tribal/Survivor style. I really wanted the colors to be warm for this theme, despite it being a winter camp. Exploring the things that are vital for life, warmth is one of them, and warm colors also seem to be incorporated into many tribal designs and clothing. The two teams for camp were Bios (representing physical needs) and Zoe (representing Spiritual needs). For Bios I made the logo a tiki statue to represent the physical in a tribal way, and for Zoe I made the symbol a flame to represent the spiritual in a tribal way. Had a lot of fun with this theme that visually is a lot different than what we've done for Winter Camps in the past.

The Abundant Life

It's been a long time! Still been busy working away, just haven't had much time to post. I'm going to try to do this more often and catch up a bit on the last few months of work. Currently at Golden Hills we are wrapping up our annual Small Group Campaign, which means workbooks! Here is what the cover looks like for this year. It's a study called The Abundant Life, exploring what it truly means to have life found in Christ.

I decided to give the study a vineyard theme for a few reasons. Vineyards are a great poster child for abundance. The culture around vineyards and wine-tasting is about the finer things in life; about embracing abundance. In this study we also spent a lot of time exploring Jesus' metaphor that He is the vine, we are the branches. He literally uses a vineyard example to make His point about how we only find true life when we are connected to Him. And lastly, vineyards are a big part of the area where I live. I see vineyards almost every day in the Bay Area, and they are a huge part of the culture here. Using the vineyard theme was a great way to communicate with and connect with the people of this area.
