Our name is Carbon Valley Lutheran. Carbon Valley is the region we are in. It encompasses the cities of Firestone, Frederick and Dacono. They were mining towns founded around 1900 thats where the "Carbon" part comes from. We continue to have oil and natural gas sires in our area.
Our website and email address will simply be "Carbonchurch.com"
There isn't much of a "Valley" at all. Supposedly their is a depression of sorts but Valley imagery won't work. its more like plains with the mountains in the distance.
Our guiding Biblical passage will be from Ezekiel 37:14 "I will put my Spirit in you and you will live."
Our tagline is: Connecting Christ...Creating Community.
Our mission statement is: Carbon Valley Lutheran; Loving Christ. Learning from Scripture. Living for community. Our Tagline is: Connecting Christ...Creating Community.
If a cross can be incorporated into the design anywhere that would also be nice but not necessary.
Some other ideas i have toyed with are playing off of the "C" of Carbon Valley. Their is a elemental factor it all. Carbon are the building blocks of all life and we feel Jesus is the building block of Eternal Life. Carbon on the periodic table is a "C." Carbon is coal but also diamonds.
The truth is our name is rather pedestrian. The pros are that its clear and will provide a good web presence. But due to the name cons I am looking for a logo which will be memorable, moving and illustrative.
