What’s behind the St. John logo
Our logo is more than just an image. It helps represent who we are as the Christian family of St. John Lutheran Church. Here’s more about the symbolism and function of the logo.
In the Christian tradition, colors are used for vestments and paraments. The colors serve to adorn the worship space and call attention to the nature of the season or festival being celebrated.
The St. John logo uses three colors that carry special meaning.
- Green – traditionally associated with the days after Pentecost and Epiphany, green represents our growth in faith as we follow the teachings and ministry of Jesus Christ
- Blue – traditionally associated with Advent, blue represents hope
- Gold – traditionally associated with the Vigil of Easter, gold represents joy in the Resurrection
In addition, white surrounds the logo. This festive color is used in many church celebrations, suggesting light, joy and the celebration of our Lord.
The vibrant colors evoke positive emotions. Gold/yellow brings out optimism and warmth; blue conveys trust, dependability and strength; and green calls to mind peace and growth.
Emphasis on people and the cross
In the logo, you see a family of people forming a heart around the cross. This helps symbolize our mission – a Christian family, living our faith and enriching lives. Our church is about all of us coming together to live our Christian beliefs and values, while enriching the lives of ourselves and others… with the cross and Christ at the center of everything we do.
