Last year as a congregation we created beautiful liturgical art with our peace cranes. This summer, we are preparing for a new Advent/Christmas tree in the sanctuary by creating Chrismons.
Chrismons are white and/or gold ornaments made with Christian symbols (the name is a contraction for ‘Christ monograms’), They were first developed by Frances Spencer and the women of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, VA. Many churches now display a Chrismon tree during the Advent and Christmas season decorated with handmade ornaments.
Every Sunday in July after Fellowship Time we will make Chrismons using three different techniques which create opportunities for people of virtually every skill level and from 1st grade to 104 in age! Plan on some wonderful times learning and creating together this summer! For information or if you already are skilled at Chrismons, contact Pastor Michael!
