All Saints is pleased to introduce our new logo. We will roll out this logo starting on Friday, August 19 at our consecration service when we officially move into our new campus but we wanted to give you a preview and tell you a little bit about our new mark, designed by Terry Slaughter.
The logo consists of three main elements, somewhat parallel to the three parts of our church's mission statement - worship, spiritual formation, and service:
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”. – John 15:5
The tree in our image is dynamic. Most of the year it has four green fruit. But there are certain seasons or days such as the Day of Pentecost or All Saints Day when it has 12 red fruit - days that signify celebration and growth for the Church. It also originates from the cross because as we grow and mature in Christ, we are sent out in service and mission to the world.
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me." –Galatians 2:20
The cross is the center of our image because union with Christ is the center of our individual and collective life . The Church is the Body of Christ, the people of God who are growing up in every way into Christ as the Word of God is heard, understood, applied, and lived together.
“You, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.” -Psalm 3:3
“Under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.” –Psalm 91:4
Throughout the Old Testament, particularly the Psalms, a shield is a symbol of God’s protection. All Saints seeks to be a place that embodies this sense of safety and protection to all who come through our doors and everyone to whom the Lord calls us to minister.
Throughout the liturgical year you'll see the logo in one of these four variations - occasionally in black, but most often with the four green fruit:
