We will soon be having meetings for a church float for 3 summer parades. We use the same float. We are a small church so need an inexpensive theme, with ideas. All ideas will be appreciated.

Maybe something about a "rainbow and a promise" or "coming home"? Perhaps choose a hymn that has nice "visuals" like "All Things Bright and Beautiful". If someone is handy with papier mache, chicken wire, and paint, maybe something with a big "rock" ("Rock of Ages") or even put fake graffiti on the "rock" with stuff from the children's song "Jesus is the rock of my salvation, His banner over me is love". Maybe mache over a large ball, and go with the theme "He's got the whole world in His hands". (You could put congregants of all different ages, etc., maybe in ethnic clothes on the float.)
If it is more the youth of the church, maybe something like "Chillin' with God" and have the teens demonstrating how they have fun while still maintaining wholesome ideals.
Maybe little vignettes showing ways your church serves the community (charity works, etc.)
If you have a choir, maybe have them on the float singing: "Shepherd and Sheep" or "Fishing for People".
Hope you find something fun; 3 parades sounds like a blast.
How about "Fishers of Men". You could use the back of someone's pickup, make it look like a boat and have people onboard with fishing rods. You could also throw out small packs of Swedish fish with your church's information, such as name, location, phone, and times of worship. (02/14/2009)
