Caption
This melamine noodle/soup entrée bowl was used at the Korean Central Presbyterian Church (KCPC), a historic Korean American evangelical church and congregation founded in 1973 in Northern Virginia. The church's logo, a five-point star, represents the 5 tenets of the church: worship, fellowship, training, ministry, and evangelism. The center of each point contains the ichthus symbol (the popular “fish” symbolizing Christianity) which gathers to a central cross motif in the middle of the logo.
The fellowship and/or potluck meal that are shared after worship services on Sundays are an important part of civic and religious life in the Korean American diaspora. Church meals are an opportunity to gather around Korean food and interact with other Korean people.
