Chrismons for Christmas


So, what's a Chrismon, you ask?  Chrismons, meaning "Christ monograms," traditionally are white and gold designs made from Christian symbols that signify Christ.  Often displayed on an evergreen tree during the Christmas season, symbols such as stars, crosses, fish, crowns, and the alpha and omega remind us of Christ's identity, his story, and of the holy Trinity.

We're offering several Chrismons for purchase this year.  Check out the choices - we have pictures of them below!  All Chrismons are $20 each, with all the proceeds benefitting our youth ministry's mission trips and GodSquad.  This price includes postage and mailing, as we will be sending them out to your homes!  We ask that you reserve your Chrismon using the online order form below or by contacting Phyllis Williams at

Each Chrismon has a limited supply, so please indicate your first choice as well as a second choice when you order, in case your first preference isn't available.  The cutoff date for ordering is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11.  If you have any questions, please contact Char Keith at 913.526.4008.  Thanks so much and have a wonderful holiday!

Chrismons Available:

  • Crown
    • A King's Crown is the symbol of royal power and authority.  It symbolizes Jesus as King of the Jews, in fulfillment of prophetic expectation, as well as the exalted Christ as King of Kings.

    • "Peace" in Latin, representing hope for peace in this world.

  • Alpha and Omega
    • The Greek letters alpha (first) and omega (last) from Rev. 1:8 and 22:13, symbolizing Jesus as the Christ who has come and will come again; it also symbolizes the continuity of God's presence in human history.
