This week’s goal was to learn about our icon of the Prophet Elijah in our church’s narthex. This is part 2 of 4 for our Youth Sunday project coming up in November.
This icon can be found in the narthex of Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in St. Louis, MO. It is an icon telling the story from the Old Testament of the Prophet Elijah being taken up to heave in a chariot of fire while handing off his mantle to his disciple, the Prophet Elisha. (4 Kingdoms 2)
