Red Hills Church has gone through renaming a few times to reach a point when they have an inclusive name and a strong logo.
About Red Hills Church
They are a growing Foursquare church in Newberg, Oregon. Last fall they began meeting in the local high school auditorium and are a short walk away from George Fox University. As a result of being so close to Fox, many college students and young families attend the church.
Name origin and meaning
The church was founded in 1991 as “Newberg Foursquare Church.” It changed to “Horizon Foursquare” sometime in the late 90s or early 2000s and switched back to “Newberg Foursquare Church.” They became “Red Hills Church” in 2016 for two reasons:
- to appeal to people who may not be familiar with the Foursquare denomination and
- to allow us to grow to surrounding towns. (You can’t be Newberg Foursquare if you aren’t in Newberg.)
What the church logo design represents
The R in the logo has a gradually sloping hill in the middle and the circle represents community and unity.
Meaning of the color
When you have a color in the church name you are kind of obligated to use that color.
How the church wants to be perceived
They want people to associate our church’s name and logo with the pursuit of Jesus in the midst of brokenness. Their first value is “It’s okay to not be okay” and they hope people know the church is a place to find healing and discover that Jesus is the solution to every one of their problems.
