The exterior signage project is a go! Thanks to donations from members and from the Saint John’s Foundation, the project is now fully funded. The Saint John’s Lutheran Foundation provided a significant portion of the money from its undesignated fund and from a couple of memorial funds. In addition, many individuals made special donations. Thank you to all who contributed to the Signage Fund Project!
As you have no doubt noticed, the new blue interior signs are already up, placed at strategic locations throughout the church building to mark rooms around the church and to help guide visitors to appropriate locations. The Board of Outreach is now ordering the exterior signs, including a large sign outside the south entrance, several signs on the north side of the church, guiding visitors to the Sanctuary, office and Fellowship Halls, and signs at each of the entrances to the parking lot—on Elizabeth, Mathews and Garfield Streets. Each of the signs will be wired for lighting.
It will take some time to assemble and install the signs. Each sign will be hewn from sandstone to match the current exterior Saint John’s sign located on the north side of the church and installed with appropriate lighting once they arrive. The Board of Outreach hopes to complete installation sometime prior to the arrival of winter. Watch the newsletter and bulletin for progress reports!
Again, thank you to all who have made this signage project such a wonderful success. If you have questions, please contact any member of the Board of Outreach for additional information.
By the way, if you tune in to AM 600 KCOL, listen for the radio spots promoting Saint John’s special Independence Day services. Let a Board member know if you hear the ads!
The Board of Outreach enlists God’s people at Saint John’s in the work of spreading the gospel to the unchurched and works to deepen the faith and activity of the members of the congregation.
