Wartburg Parish Banners:

The Wartburg Parish banners are being displayed together for the first time tonight at the joint Thanksgiving Eve service at Peace, Chester. The five banners, one for each Wartburg Parish congregation, have the unifying design of a leafy vine curling across the bottom, symbolizing that Christ is the vine, and we are all its branches. Additional motifs on the individual banners differ from one another, symbolizing the diversity of the congregations they represent. Each church chose a key word and meaningful symbols to convey their central mission:

•St. Peter, Wine Hill: “Love” in emerald green letters; with a cross and a heart-shaped flower, symbolizing the love of Christ growing in our hearts

•Peace, Steeleville: “Charity” in red letters; with a hand holding a globe, symbolizing our outreach ministry to Steeleville and beyond

•St. John’s, Bremen: “Faith” in pink letters; with a large cross, the central symbol of our life in Christ

•St. John, Post Oak: “Hope” in purple letters; with sun beams and a butterfly, symbolizing our hope in Christ

•Peace, Chester: “Peace” in sky blue letters; with white doves, symbolizing working together to overcome conflict

We extend our thanks and appreciation to the designers and crafters of the Wartburg Parish banners:

•St. John’s, Bremen: Judy and Lacie Ebers

•St. John, Post Oak : Joyce Ohlau

•St. Peter, Wine Hill: Doris Feaman

•Peace, Chester: Margaret (Maggie) Pierce
