Hope Presbyterian Church

The Banner Bunch meets every other Tuesday night at 7 PM.  We began in 2000 mainly to retire outdated banners and construct new ones for our sanctuary.  Since then we have an impressive array of liturgical banners to adorn our sanctuary throughout the year.  Our banners are on display in the sanctuary during our annual Hope for the Holidays event.  We continue to meet and work on quilting and sewing projects for our church and the community.  For our friends who do not sew, we often have parts of a project that non-sewers can easily do – cut, press, and pin for example. 

Some past and current projects include:

  • Lap quilts for Hope Church members and shut-ins.
  •  Quilts for Kemmerer Village in Assumption IL
  •  Surgical caps for children at St. John's and Memorial Hospital
  • For 2015, Leisa Project- Banners for Presbyterian Churches in South Sudan
  • Updating seasonal banners for the sanctuary
