Visual Identity

In recent months, we have restated our EBIC mission: We want to see every generation growing together as Christ’s hands & feet in our world. To accompany this new statement, we have developed a new visual identity…in other words, a new logo and color palette to use in our various media.

While we know a logo can’t capture a full expression of who we are as the body of Christ, it can still be a useful tool for communicating something about who we are and what matters to us. When you look at our new EBIC logo, we hope that:

  • the e reminds you of the value we place on being part of our community of E-town
  • the different colors of the leaves make you think of beauty in diversity…what we want to experience by ministering to “every generation” rather than just a single target demographic
  • the greens bring to mind our goal of “growing” as disciples of Jesus
  • the three leaves symbolize “growing together”—in relationship with one another and in communion with our three-in-one God—Father, Son, and Spirit
  • the upward curve of the leaves evokes worship of God, and the outward turn exhibits being “Christ’s hands & feet” in reaching out to and serving others
  • the blue calls to mind the care we have for “our world”—our mission spans the whole globe
  • the bic prompts thoughts of our deeply appreciated partnership with the Brethren in Christ, our denominational family

DISABILITY MINISTRY

Supporting and embracing families and individuals affected by disability so they can grow in Christ and use their gifts to share God’s love.

 Everyone has their own individual needs and each person with a disability should be supported to enable them to engage with church life. We strive to embrace families and individuals affected by disability and allow them to grow closer to God and to their church family. Valuing the gifts and talents of all, we provide support so that individuals affected by disability can serve alongside their brothers and sisters in Christ. If you have a need, please let us know how we can serve you. 

Do you have a desire to learn and build relationships? You may participate in the disability ministry in these ways: 

BUDDY MINISTRY

Buddies are paired with children or adults with disabilities to provide social, behavioral, and physical support to attend and participate in church activities, either in an integrated setting or in a separate setting, if needed.

EMERGENCY SUPPORT TEAM

Our team supports families and individuals affected by disabilities when they encounter sudden changes in plans or emergency situations. Needs may include childcare, transportation, or care for an individual with a disability.
