The Building to Bless logo was designed with a story to tell, a story that we believe embodies our purpose statement of Together, BOLDLY living and sharing God’s grace with all.
One of the first things you will notice is that central to the logo is the cross. It is a cross made up of bricks. Bricks symbolize the building aspect of our capital campaign, but the bricks also symbolize how the love of Christ holds us together and gives us shape and purpose as the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12). The cross is black, a reflection of the same black cross found in Martin Luther’s seal. Luther said about his seal, “The first symbol should be a black cross…so that I myself would be reminded that faith in the Crucified saves us.”
Surrounding the cross are the vibrant and rich colors of the church year, a reminder that as we build to bless, we do so for all seasons and for all in our community. We are building to bless our neighbors, our ministries, and our world. The blue of Advent, green of Epiphany and Pentecost season, purple of Lent, red of Pentecost and God’s Spirit, and the white of Christmas and Easter are woven into and hold the entire logo together. As we move through the seasons of the church year, we remember that it is the Spirit of God who moves and empowers us to be God’s hands and feet of blessing in the world.
Finally a circle moves through the seasons and encircles the cross, as if inviting you in closer…to join into the story of God. The circle is an unbroken line, a symbol of the unity and oneness we have in Christ.
