We are a church in the "Foothills" of the Rocky Mountains, although the logo does not have to include mountains. We are really looking for a logo that reflects the personality of our church. We are a relatively large church with a lot of young families. probably 75% of the people that come to a weekend service are 45 & younger. Most people in this area are very active and love hiking, camping, skiing & such. Most people say that our church is raw in it's approach. We are not a cookie cutter church where everything is nice & pretty. We meet in a converted theater in a large shopping center. Weekend services are upbeat and the music is rock heavy. We attract people who are hurting and pretty broken and are looking for a safe place. We are looking for an icon that communicates less about what we are about, but instead one that will appeal to people that fit within our target audience. Our current logo (http://www.foothillsonline.or) doesn't work because the icon represents something pretty internal. No one outside our church will understand that and therefore it creates confusion for someone giving us a look. A couple of churches close to us that fit a similar demographic is http://www.flatironschurch.com & http://www.redrockschurch.com. Their approach to logo/icon probably is a better fit than what we currently use. Thanks for your help.
