Banners are made with designs proposed for the various themes and seasons of the church year. As the seasons change, so do the banners. Because these banners and other paraments are not sewn, they are cut-and-paste type; hence, no real artistic/sewing skills required. Four parament hangar hooks are used, as well as banner poles for display. For information about joining this ministry email Elaine Walter or call her at 989.652.6374.
