Anyone who has visited the church in the last month has probably noticed that the long-awaited exterior signs around the church building were installed. Saint John’s now has signs on the north side of the church building to guide visitors to the Worship Center, church office and fellowship halls, a large sign over the south entrance of the building and signs at each of the entrances to the parking lot (at Elizabeth, Mathews and Garfield Streets). The Board of Outreach is celebrating the completion of this portion of the signage project!
The final phase of this endeavor, which the Board of Outreach will be addressing in the coming months, is choosing light fixtures and wiring the signs. It is important that the exterior signs be lit up and visible at night to help guide people to evening worship services, music concerts and other evening meetings, especially as the winter months bring shorter days.
An original misquote for the cost of the lighting and installation means that the board needs a small amount of additional funding in the coming months to complete this portion of the signage project, and asks for your prayerful consideration in addressing this need. The new estimate is approximately $500. If you would like to donate to this need, please indicate in the memo of your check “signage lighting” and drop it in the collection plate or deliver it to the church office. Once the Board of Outreach raises this final $500, they will immediately move forward to complete the project.
The Board of Outreach would like to thank all who have made the interior and exterior signage projects such a wonderful success. The gifts of time and talent you have provided have made the goal of making the church building a more welcoming place to visitors and members has become a reality!
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.
