We are so excited to present the new Haywood Street t-shirts! Many thanks to Lightning Bolt Ink–a downtown Asheville, living wage certified, screen printing company. Through their guidance and craft, we have been able to bring this special product to life. All proceeds, beyond production expenses, go to supporting the programs of the Haywood Street Congregation.
As you can see, there are two designs available. One option reads ‘Haywood St.’, while the other presents our new logo. In telling the story of this image, Rev. Brian Combs’s has provided the following:
“After months of discernment, conversation, and revision with Atlas Branding, Haywood Street unveiled a new logo. Instead of the manicured and distant images so often seen in gothic stained glass, we wanted to illustrate a Jesus among us, a very human Savior showing up at meal times, in worship, and under the bridge.
Following the shape of the windows in our bell tower, our symbol has a trinity of panels, each underscoring a primary area of ministry. On the left, embracing friends are seated at the Welcome Table, a meal of fellowship in urban Asheville. The central panel illustrates our deepest identity as a church. The sanctuary doors are flung wide open for all to enter and gather around the altar of grace. On the right, Respite is happening as an injured camper warms himself around the fire of healing relationship.
In the same way early Christians carried wooden triptychs as a reminder of what they believed, we trust this new logo will carry our theology to the streets of downtown and beyond.”
Currently, both designs are available for purchase. Please visit Lesli or Laura in Room 8 for payment and pickup. Sizes vary from XS-3XL. $20 for ‘Haywood St.’ design & $25 for logo design. Stay tuned for Paypal option of payment on our Merchandise page. Thank you!
