Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Windward United Church of Christ is a Protestant Christian congregation whose campus is home not only to the worshiping congregation, but to a variety of recovery self-help groups and other health and human services organizations. Compassionate outreach to this beach-side community is shown in our UCC slogan: "no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here."
Target audiences include community members looking for a place of worship, people who participate in one of the community groups which meet on the church campus and members of the church. Emphasis is on who might be attracted to join us, as opposed to simply focusing on those who are already members.

We are a progressive thinking congregation of about 100 members--small enough to have warm fellowship among the group and large enough to reach out to needs beyond our own. The congregation is racially diverse. We're located on the windward side of the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii, so we see wind, rain, and lush tropical foliage. Many plumeria trees adorn our campus, along with palm trees. There are no distinguishing symbols that set our house of worship apart. We are nestled between the Koolau Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
Fonts and images of our denomination, the United Church of Christ may be found at http://www.ucc.org/about-us/ucc-logo.html. They do not have to be used in our church logo, but they may prove helpful to your sense of design. We like the official fonts used for "God is still speaking." and "The United Church of Christ", but DO NOT wish to use the "cross on a circle" or "That they may all be one." graphic, nor do we want red and black colors for a logo. Cool greens and blues seem more fitting to our ocean location. Overtly Christian symbols may be used in your design but we would like to see logos without overtly Christian symbols as well. Please note that we are NOT a conservative church and so designs with a more cheerful inviting flavor are best.
The images that come to mind when I think of WUCC are:
1. Ocean waves
3. Koolau mountains
4. Hands (helping)
5. Heart (compassion)
Try to stay away from overtly Christian symbols such as large crosses, etc...
