First Presbyterian Church: Epiphany
"Peace be to this house and to all who pass through its doors.
With the wise men from the East, we ask,
Where is the child who has been born a king?
We have come to pay him homage.
When the star stopped over the place where the child was,
the Magi were overwhelmed with joy!
They entered the house and saw the holy Christ, with Mary, his mother.
With those who first adored him, we have come to honor the Savior.
God, we thank you for revealing Jesus to the world.
May the living Lord bless this home and all who live or visit here."

The Official Seal
The official seal of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) was adopted in 1985. At first glance it looks like a cross. But, it is intended to capture some of the important emphases of the Reformed tradition.
The seal is comprised of the symbol, the basic components of which are Cross, Scripture, a descending Dove at the upper part of the cross, and Flames on either side of the lower part of the cross, and the name of the denomination, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), encircles the symbol. It was designed by Malcolm Grear and Associates.
The Cross represents the incarnate love of God in Jesus Christ, and his passion and resurrection. Because of its association with Presbyterian history, the Celtic cross was chosen.
