TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A local church uses the memory of one of their own as a way to promote a special message.

Central Christian Church held a dedication ceremony for their new Peace Pole. It’s an internationally known symbol that stands as a monument to peace. On each side, the pole bears the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in different languages.

The pole at Central Christian Church is in honor of a youth group member who passed away. Church members say the youth group came up with the idea of the Peace Pole after a mission trip in Kentucky.

Organizers hope the Peace Pole will serve as a memorial for the young member as well as a reminder that everyone promote peace in our world.
