The banner hanging in the front of the sanctuary represents the wilderness, reminding us of the forty days that Jesus spent there, fasting and being tempted by the devil.
The palms are for Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. And the purple, the color of royalty is a reference to Christ the King. The variety of purples and the black lettering remind us of the pain, suffering and passion that we remember as we pray during this season.
Bordering the banner is the color of white that represents the anticipation of the Easter season.
Palm Sunday - One Great Hour of Sharing Offering
Our offering makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer from disaster, conflict, or poverty.
One Great Hour of Sharing ministries reach people worldwide, including the United States. Together we provide disaster relief, health care, education, job training, shelter, schools clean water, and food.
Our offering to One Great Hour of Sharing helps meet the needs that make the headlines and needs that headlines ignore. We give to this ministry on Palm Sunday (March 20), but the good work done by our gifts gives life again, and again, and last much longer. An offering envelope is enclosed for your convenience.
