DID YOU KNOW?...that color has been used for centuries in Christian worship? Color is one of God's ways of filling His world with beauty and giving pleasure to the viewer. Liturgical colors, like music, complement the message of the church season. The use of liturgical colors is much more than merely to attract the eye and make the surroundings "pretty". These colors help to establish a climate in which God’s Law and Gospel can be heard and received. Color communicates and reinforces the seasons and events in the life of our Lord and His church. Traditionally, five basic colors have been used in liturgical congregations - white, red, green purple and black. We use these colors to enhance our worship experience and direct us to our Lord!
