Reinvented – Again!
Christ Church Parish Kent Island has been around for almost four centuries. Clearly, God has plans for our Church – we could only have survived this long through his grace. Just because we’ve been around for a long time does not mean that we have existed as the same church for all those years. In fact, the opposite is true: we are here because we have listened to God and each other, and have adapted to remain grounded in Christ, growing in faith and giving in community.
Our most recent changes began in 2015, with Round Table conversations that resulted in naming four areas that are important in our Church: Children, Youth, and Family; Worship; Care and Community; and Outreach. From there, we aligned our ministries to address needs in those areas. This spring, we voiced our purpose in the Mission/Vision statement, and we developed our new tag line so that others can recognize our values:
Grounded in Christ, Growing in Faith, Giving in Community.
The next step is to identify ourselves visually, and to that end, we have a new logo. The logo represents our Church graphically by incorporating the cross that graces the window of our glorious worship space. It is personal, and it is unique to us. The “wave” and colors reflect our island identity, and text font recognizes our rich traditions.
Watch for our logo and our tag line to appear in new signs throughout the facility and in other applications where a brief reminder of our roots is appropriate.
Additionally, we will use the following graphic on letterhead and other written pieces to honor our heritage as a member of the Episcopal Church.
