Family Ministry Banners

Here is a sneak peek at some banners that I helped to create for our church.  We are celebrating some of the past year's family ministry events on Sunday and wanted something new in our worship space to emphasize this focus.  As you can see, the banners are designed to reinforce the celebration of God's saving works.  My own children have really enjoyed looking at the symbolic banner as it has been coming together at our house.  They enjoy reviewing the Bible stories that correspond with each of the pictures.  Can you identify each image?  (That really is the point!!!) 

What you cannot see on this picture is the final detail--the "plain" banner with the verse will have many colored handprints, traced from the hands of the children of our church, all around the outside edge--another beautiful symbol of the God's work even now in the life of God's Church.


O my people, listen to my instructions.
Open your ears to what I am saying,
for I will speak to you in a parable.
I will teach you hidden lessons from our past—
stories we have heard and known,
stories our ancestors handed down to us.
We will not hide these truths from our children;
we will tell the next generation
about the glorious deeds of the Lord,
about his power and his mighty wonders.
For he issued his laws to Jacob;
he gave his instructions to Israel.
He commanded our ancestors
to teach them to their children,
so the next generation might know them—
even the children not yet born—
and they in turn will teach their own children.
So each generation should set its hope anew on God,
not forgetting his glorious miracles
and obeying his commands.
Psalm 78:1-7 NLT
