Admittedly, our Lighthouse Chariot mascot is rather unique in description. What does a chariot or a horse have to do with a lighthouse?
A chariot is the wheeled carriage at the bottom of a lighthouse lens assembly. This mechanism allows the lens to rotate its light out into the darkness, serving as the lighthouse beacon that guides ships safely to shore. As the chariot is the firm foundation of the inner workings of a lighthouse, Jesus is our solid foundation on which we rest our hope and salvation.
A horse mascot represents a common identity among a group. Our horse, Chariot, represents LHCA's common identity in Jesus and our mission of JOY to shine our light into the world. Go Chariots!
When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
