Chrismon Work Day

The Ladies Aid group will be hosting a work day at the church on Saturday, September 21 at 9:00 a.m. to create new chrismons.   All ladies are invited to help with this project.  

What is a Chrismon? Chrismon is a combination of parts of two words-Christ and mon.  A Chrismon is just that-a monogram of Christ.  Each Chrismon design has a special meaning, for example, the shell symbolizes baptism.  The 6-pointed star represents the Star of David.  Chrismon symbols are made in gold and white.  The gold represents the radiance of God’s love, His majesty and glory; the white represents the purity and perfection of our God.

If you have any questions, please contact Debbie or Barb Wilson.
