 Missions Banner Design Ideas
Does your church send out missons teams?  Their trip offers you the perfect opporutnity to decorate your sanctuary to focus on the team and those they will be encountering.  Your church banner design ideas will help remind the congregation to bathe them in prayer.

Banner Fabrics:
  • We had one of our missions teams pick up fabric from the country they were ministering in to use for the borders of our banners.
Church Themes:
  • Scripture speaks for itself.  Use fabric lettering to bring out the message, and add a visual design to enhance it.
Quilting Your Missions Cloth Banner:
  • Let's make these totally missions!  My quilter had African Christian symbols that she quilted into the corner squares, giving more meaning to the project.
Banner Groupings:  There are several items you will want to keep consistant.
  • Keep the size and shape the same.
  • Keep the border style the same.
  • Keep the background fabric the same.
  • Hang each of them the same way.
With careful planning, you will have a unifying missions theme that is evident in how you put together you banner design ideas.
