October 8, 2017 will be the 50th Anniversary of the dedication of our present facilities. On October 8, 1967, St. John's members left the original location of our congregation's beginnings on the corner of Bliss and Elm Streets, just a block south of Brockway Road to dedicate our new church at 4705 Brockway Road. It will be 50 years to the day that we are now planning to have a special anniversary service of thanksgiving to the Lord for all his blessings upon our congregation over the years. A special Commemoration Committee has been established and is already at work in planning other sub-committees for this special observance.
The Board of Trustees has proposed a list of special projects that will be presented before the congregation over the coming months that are meant to help in the enhancement of the worship/school facilities that our gracious Lord has given us for the work of his preaching and teaching the Gospel. These proposed projects are being divided into two categories: Special enhancements and Necessary enhancements. Their proposals will be set before the congregation over the coming months.
To fund these proposed projects a special opportunity for our members to offer Thank Offerings. Some of these projects have already been funded and completed. In a few weeks, visual progress reports will be displayed in our church narthex, as well as in Sunday bulletins. The most recent completed project has been the re-sealing and striping of the parking lot.
Plans are already made to have a special thanksgiving service on October 8, 2017, along with a special fellowship dinner and a presentation of Christian music by the well known Christian music band, "Koine," which has already committed to performing for us on October 8, 2017.
Much more information will be forthcoming. To the right is the logo designed by Craig Snook, our personal artist, for our 2017 50th Anniversary Thanksgiving Celebration. Look for it in upcoming publications!
