Hallway Banners

Have you ever wondered what banners in the hallway represent?  We look at them each week when we walk through the building, but maybe we don’t see or understand the creative symbolism in them, which display the glory of God.

Former Interim Pastor Jump once presented a series of sermons about The Great Ends of the Church as stated in our Presbyterian Book of Order.  The 6 banners that hang along the hallway, describe these ends, which point us toward our Christian mission:

  • The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind;
  • The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God;
  • The maintenance of divine worship;
  • The preservation of the truth;
  • The promotion of social righteousness; and
  • The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the World.

The banners were made by former long time member, Mikie Lancaster, who is an A+ seamstress.  If you cannot identify each of the banners, take a peek at the back corner for a brief explanation.
