The Symbolism of Sanctuary Colors

Why Do We Change the Sanctuary Colors?

    Have you ever wondered why we change our sanctuary colors?  This page will answer those questions for you!  Each season we will post the color and symbolism for that season.  The color for Lenten Season is purple.  Purple is associated with:

  • Mourning
  • The passion and suffering of the crucifixion
  • Royalty and the sovereignty of Christ

     In addition to the color purple, please notice the symbol on the lectern is a bound cross, the pulpit symbol is a crown of thorns interspersed with nails, and the communion table is adorned with three crosses and nails.
