A New Church Logo

“In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” (Galatians 3:26-27)

After nearly two years of prayer, creativity, design, modification, re-design, and further modification, our church finally has a new logo that conveys the sense of what we feel to be the identity and calling of our congregation. Recently adopted by our Administrative Council, the new logo is reflective of our mission/purpose of being “A Mosaic of God’s Family… Gathering, Growing, and Going.”

As a diverse congregation – a MOSAIC, with members from at least six different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds, containing conservatives and liberals, Democrats and Republicans, traditional and contemporary folks, the young and the “not-as-young” – we GATHER at the foot of the cross and flame (representing our United Methodist heritage) to embrace God and embrace others (who may even be different from us). We then GROW in faith, love and joy as we together travel a path that sends us GOING out into our world to serve our fellow human beings, and to share the good news of Jesus with them. The path, in turn, leads us all back to our church --God’s tool to bring people to the foot of the cross to Gather and start the cycle all over again.

In the coming weeks, you'll notice our new logo appearing increasingly in all of our publications and other places as a reminder of who we are and who we’re called to be. So, our prayer is that the design will not only inspire you to remember our mission/purpose, but to help others find and claim it for themselves, as well.

Remember, God loves you and I do, too!
