A FAMILY OF FAITH UNITED TO GROW, SERVE, AND SHARE THE LOVE OF GOD'S SON JESUS CHRIST.

New Cross and Ball
From Campbellsville Industries Inc.:
A decorative gold leaf cross for St. John’s Lutheran Church in Palmer, Kansas. The cross was given a 23 ½ K gold lead finish and turned out beautifully. The cross mast is fabricated from 3” x 5” aluminum tube, is 6’-0” in height with a 20” diameter ball, and cross arms and vertical mast that come to a 4-way point. The cross has a much larger decorative base assembly that goes below the cross and ball and is not shown, as it was not a part of the gold leafing.
