God said, "Let there be light," and there was light!
The new outdoor lights have been installed and are working wonderfully well. Many thanks to Father Ross and the Vestry members for thoroughly researching the most energy efficient, longest lasting, and adequately bright lights. All of us at St. John's feel so much safer leaving choir practice, meetings, and concerts after dark with the LED lights illuminating our way.
Downstairs doors for the Parish House have been installed. The frame around the door matches the new doors. It was decided to not use our wood frame for the new doors but rather have the metal framing instead for longevity.
Music at St. John’s
Two new banners and a new sandwich sign have been placed in front of the church to advertise our new music series.
