Federated Cross

Our sanctuary cross, installed when our church was built in 1963, remains relevant today with our current Five Core Values. As requested by Federated’s Building Committee in the early 1960’s, the cross was designed and handcrafted by Clark Battle Fitzgerald, a widely known metal sculptor of ecclesiastical art who resided in Castine, Maine.  What Mr. Fitzgerald designed then remains consistent with our current core values:

We are Christ-centered

We work together

We share Christ’s love through serving others

We are traditional with a twist

We welcome all people
