5 Design Trends You’ll Want In Your Church This Fall


Exciting things are happening in the church this Fall! 

Over the past 18 months, from Pastors to congregants, our lives have been changed forever, but with the upcoming changing of the leaves, we are inspired by what we are finally seeing. Churches are open, and even if mask mandates are back in effect for your area, neighbors are still able to worship together again! Our kids are headed back to school, and in-person programs are returning to the church schedule. All this progress means we need to re-engage in our marketing and preparation.

At Outreach, we regularly survey our customers and church leaders, and spend countless hours researching design trends in the church for each season. We’ve compiled the best of our analysis here to help you plan a spectacular fall!


Churches are going big this fall. Giant canvas print sets are hot!

What’s new? Foundational scriptures and messages spread across gorgeous landscape panoramas in various wall-filling proportions, and canvas cross sets now include dramatic unifying photography.

Kids’ Spaces

Many churches suspended kids programs through the pandemic, and are now investing in these areas to inspire and re-engage younger members. Adding vibrant wall stickers is one the easiest ways to quickly and inexpensively decorate kid’s spaces, but don’t forget to add directional and sign-in  messaging to reacquaint your congregants with room locations or changes in safety protocol.

Traditional designs

Traditional colors and themes never go out of style for Fall. This year we are seeing rich photographic scenes and hand painted craft-style illustrations trending.

Bold Contemporary Designs

Among the hottest design trends today are graphic pattern motifs. Simple contemporary designs that grab the viewer’s attention with bold colors and direct messages.


Hope is proving to be the operative word for 2021. Our research has led us to include the idea of hope in invitational and inspirational messages for both Fall and Christmas seasons.

Hope is so needed in the church, and the community, that we’ve dedicated this year’s National Back To Church Sunday theme. Hope Is Here is a rally cry for our communities to gather, grow and build the church like never before.

Special Christmas Sneak Peek!

Christmas is coming and we have been hard at work designing our new Christmas, advent and Christmas Eve invitation lineup to advertise your events and invite your community.

Deep, rich colors with pops of gold sparkle from these new designs. Christmas 2021 is a blend of traditional visuals and concepts, and ultra-cool contemporary designs with non-traditional color palettes. You’ll find concepts this year you won’t see anywhere else, tried and true invitational messages and designs ready to be customized online with your specific events and times, and you may even start humming a few carols a little earlier this year.

By the way, if you are in an area where the Delta variant is a concern, be sure to stock up on safety supplies like face masks and Purerox™ disinfectant – which can kill viruses in your building!
