CHAUVET Professional Accents Emotional Elements At Easter Services

A tremendous amount of emotion is built into Fairhaven's Maundy Thursday service, which was in part created by the powerful palette of visual color.

Fairhaven Church services brought worshippers from the events leading up to the crucifixion of anguish and pain to the hope and renewal of Easter morning.

For Jacob VanVlymen, the uplifting Easter lighting display he created this year for the 7,000-member Fairhaven Church was really the second piece of a two-part design.  The power of his Easter Sunday lighting grew out of the work he did 72 hours earlier for his church’s Maundy Thursday service, which commemorates the events leading up to the crucifixion. “Taken together, the Thursday and Sunday services embody the meaning of Easter,” he said. “They take worshippers from anguish and pain to hope and renewal.”

Capturing this transformation in light was critical to VanVlymen’s design. To do this, he relied on some profoundly evocative color changes created with CHAUVET Professional Rogue R2 Wash fixtures, purchased from Mankin Media.

“I find the connection between color and emotions to be extraordinarily powerful,” said VanVlymen. “It’s truly amazing how color can change how you feel or reinforce the feelings that are evoked by what you’re seeing. So, if I had put out blues and greens instead of reds when the band played the song ‘Oh the Blood’ during our Thursday service, it would have made less sense to the audience.”

The Thursday night Maundy service at Fairhaven features powerful scripture readings with breathtaking images displayed on video panels throughout the church, and a handmade wooden cross that is walked onto the stage. “Fairhaven has many amazing special services, but Maundy Thursday is my absolute favorite from a design standpoint, because of the amount of emotion that is built into it,” said VanVlymen. “I believe our lighting really amplified the power of this service with the palette that we selected.”
