Symbols of the Christian faith are presented in a spectacular way in The Amelia Plantation Chapel through the art of needlepoint. Seasonal banners combine with Chapel furnishings to reveal the knowledge of the Lord to those who have never known Him and to bring remembrance to believers of God's promises and blessings. The needlepoint for the Chapel was designed by Susan Witt of Columbus, Georgia, and was stitched entirely by Chapel members. The total project was completed in less than two years. It is our prayer that each visitor to our Chapel will experience the presence and love of God though these symbols of faith and, in turn, share that faith with others.
Two symbols, The Tree of Life and the Seven Branched Menorah can be found in each piece of needlepoint. The Tree of Life is associated in Scripture with experiencing the life of God in Heaven. In Proverbs it is represented as Wisdom, Righteousness, Helpfulness, Hopefulness, and Wholesomeness. The Seven Branched Menorah represents the presence of God.
