Nelson United Church 1999 Conference Banner

In May, 1999, the British Columbia Conference of the United Church was hosted by Kootenay Presbytery at the Castlegar Recreation Centre. The theme was "In the midst of mountains and valleys, we are shaped by God in creation." To help decorate the huge "ice-rink" space a call went out to the Pastoral Charges of the Presbytery to create banners to hang from the ceiling.

The Nelson United Church Banner was made by Brenda Cowen, Janet Boyd, Judy Cameron and Dorothy Wayling and was adapted from a design found in the Singer Sewing Reference Library’s Quilt Projects by Machine. The banner represents the path of God’s light through our beautiful Kootenay mountains and valleys.
