The Lord is my Banner
The Music and Worship Arts Department believes that the banner ministry is both an important and encouraging one. Lifting up the Name of the Lord is the sole purpose behind the banners we design and construct for the church sanctuary. Whether the banner actually contains a name of God or shows an idea His Word teaches us, we make them only to glorify Him. None are made purely for decorating the sanctuary.
These projects are not entered into lightly, but with much prayer and planning. Fabrics, colors and trims are chosen with meaning in mind. For example, fringes and tassels were used in the Bible as a sign to remember the commands of the Lord. Gold is always a sign of wealth. Purple infers royalty. Black is a color that shows mourning. White depicts purity. Symbols such as the cross, the Greek letters for Alpha and Omega, and even the style of lettering are chosen to help portray the theme of the banner.
