Lenten Worship Backgrounds

2015 Update: Check out the expanded version of these slides.

Last year, we used a pretty basic Lenten Worship background. We used purple for most of the season with a pine needles texture to give it some depth. Good Friday was all black except for the same cross emblem we were using. Easter was a completely different design.

I wanted a more cohesive set this year that flowed from Ash Wednesday through Easter. I used this tutorial as the basis for the set we’re using. In addition to the backgrounds, we have matching posters inviting people to worship, plus a series of graphics that will appear on our website for the various special worship times during the season.

Here’s the complete set for use in your church if you’d like. The colors are fairly dark because the projector lightens them up a bit when they’re on the wall. It also improves the readability onscreen for the text of the service.

    Hi there.

    I create the slides for our worship service each Sunday.
    I can’t tell. Are these backgrounds free downloads?

    Curious if we are related… Late husband was a Christ… Couldn’t figure out how to send this privately šŸ™‚

      I haven’t found many Christ relatives, so I doubt it. My dad was an only child.
