Helping Churches Help People
"Mobilizing Local Churches to Transform Lives and Communities In the Name of Christ"
Love INC of South Wood County is part of a nationwide network of affiliates across the nation. Since 1977, Love INC National has been mobilizing churches to meet the needs of its community, resulting in proven practices.
As a local affiliate, Love INC of South Wood County coordinates service with local churches, non-profits, community agencies, and volunteers. We foster a relational response that brings together volunteers and resources to help neighbors.
Our vision is to see churches working across denominational lines to serve people in need. As Christians join together in unity to use their gifts and strengths, people will find hope, and both lives and communities will be transformed. We will collaborate with local agencies and organizations to meet multi-faceted needs.
Clean and versatile, this mark, like our ministry, is about connection and transformation.
We are connectors.
We connect churches to one another and their community. We connect community members to resources and support. We bring people together, and in those intersections, they experience divine encounters with God.
Secondly, while our mission is about transformation, we are not the ones who do the transformation work.
Rather, we create the scaffolding upon which transformation and growth is possible.
We create spaces where church volunteers and community members’ lives intersect and reciprocal transformation can occur. Then, the body of Christ rises up to do what it does best—care for one another and point people to God.
In our new logo, you see the scaffolding concept incorporated through the lattice design of our updated heart and cross.
In the supporting graphics that are a part our new look, you’ll see the scaffolding concept elaborated on in elements such as patterns that represent the divine intersection of disparate lives and elongated lines that visualize ongoing journeys.
We believe as our faith is lived out through loving service, we will see everyone making progress toward the fullness of life.
