They Will Soar on Wings Like Eagles…
We are excited to introduce Eastern Christian’s new logo. The new logo, our first in more than twenty five years, is based upon three themes that tell of God’s faithfulness to our school throughout its 122 year history.
The eagle at the center of the shield refers to the words of Isaiah 40:31, recounting Isaiah’s message that “…those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
The shield refers to the words of Psalm 91:4 which remind us that “…under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.”
Finally, the logo includes the year of Eastern Christian’s founding, 1892, reminding us yet again of God’s faithfulness to a little Christian school founded by an immigrant community in the heart of Paterson and sustained through two world wars, the Great Depression, and subsequent decades of upheaval and social change.
Great is his faithfulness!
The new logo is the first step in a broader re-branding strategy that will also include a newly developed website designed to be easier to navigate and more user friendly for members of the Eastern Christian community and for those searching for a high quality, Christ-centered education for their children. Be on the lookout for the next phase of our re-branding effort later this spring as we continue to reflect upon our Lord’s great faithfulness in the past and look forward to the bright future that he has prepared for us.
