The Great Ends of the Church

Sanctuary Banner 3, representing the third great end: the maintenance of divine worship "The maintenance of divine worship" The chalice, a reminder of the Trinity, represents the Lord's Supper, and the three drops of water, Baptism in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The dove reminds us that the same Spirit is present in the Sacraments as in the proclamation of the gospel. The Sacraments enact the gospel. The raised arms signify our response of praise and thanksgiving: our worship of the living God.
