Chrismon Tree

Chrismon Tree. Did you know that Pender has a Chrismon Tree in the sanctuary at Christmas time?

Do you know what do those symbols mean on the tree? Who made them and why?

Ornaments made from Christian symbols (or Chrismons, a contraction for ‘Christ monograms’) were first developed by Frances Spencer and the women of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, VA. Many churches display a Chrismon tree during the Advent and Christmas season decorated with handmade ornaments.

In the video below, Chuck talks about the Chrismon Tree.
