Hershey PCA Logo
The Cross = This particular cross is called a cross crosslet because there is a “smaller cross on the end of each arm” (Free Dictionary). It has been called the “Mission Cross” and has sometimes been used to represent the four Gospels. Our logo reminds us of our mission to reach more people for Jesus in Hershey and around the world. In the logo, the cross is formed by using the two down strokes of the capital “H” and crossing them as a way to indicate that the message of the cross is being proclaimed in Hershey and from Hershey to the world.
The Blue Field = Using the color of Trinity PCA’s logo represents our continuing connection with Trinity PCA in Harrisburg, PA.
A Brief History of the PCA
In 1982, the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod, joined the Presbyterian Church in America. The Reformed Presbyterian Church, Evangelical Synod, had been formed in 1965 by a merger of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and the Reformed Presbyterian Church in North America, General Synod.
The PCA has made a firm commitment on the doctrinal standards which had been significant in Presbyterianism since 1645, namely the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms. These doctrinal standards express the distinctive (nature) of the Calvinistic or Reformed tradition.
