*Tree of Life Banner

Nov 04, 2018

Thanks be to God for this wonderful addition to our sanctuary!  The banner will be dedicated in worship on All Saints’ Sunday, November 11.

A note from our Quilters:  As time came to replace the Good Ship Banner with something else, the question was “what?” Pastor Hoffman and Mary Osgood saw a picture of a Tree of Life Banner and asked if it was possible.  They approached the quilt group to see if they could fabricate a banner based on this design.  

Inspired by the idea of a Tree of Life Banner and the bright colors of our own stained-glass windows as well as our Trinity Tree paraments, the quilters were ready to construct something uniquely special.  The Banner consists of almost 400 pieces and took approximately 150 labor hours. The BLC Quilters truly believe we felt God’s presence, as each time we came to a stumbling block, someone came forward to lead us to the next phase.  This banner is dedicated to the Glory of God by the BLC Quilters.
