>>LENT & ADVENT WEDDINGS<<
Here at Jacob’s Well, engaging our creative gifts is in our DNA. Musicians, writers and visual artists all make up the Sunday gatherings shared by our community. Throughout the year, we aim to make the experience of worship and learning truly meaningful, maybe even unforgettable. For most of the year we keep our visual decor small and easy to remove and reset in order to accommodate weddings, however the Advent and Lenten seasons at Jacob’s Well are very different. Upon consulting with the teaching pastors, a team of artists use the full space at the front of the Sanctuary, often hanging elements from wires high above the altar and stage. These installations take weeks to create, often being built on site during the week before the first Sunday of the Advent and Lenten seasons. Meant to last throughout Advent and Lent, the decor cannot be removed for weddings during this time. In addition, we do not know the theme of the visual work until just before the Advent and Lenten seasons begin. Rest assured, the designs always celebrate the season in a beautiful way!
If you host your wedding during the Advent or Lenten season, you agree to utilize our altar, stage, and foyer decor and adhere to the policies surrounding them.
Here’s an example of the Advent decor from 2014…
