Sanctuary Symbolism

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

At West Heights UMC, symbols play a crucial role in elevating worship experiences. These symbols are not valued for themselves, but for what they represent. The shape of the sanctuary, for instance, is designed in the form of a cross, with the choir loft and nave symbolizing the shaft, and the chapel and Gallery West representing the arms of the cross. This intentional use of symbols helps to deepen the spiritual connection and evoke a sense of holiness for those who worship there.
