Still going strong after 50 years, Grace St. John’s building, constructed in Carman in 1965, has served its congregation well. Originally constructed as an Anglican Church (St. John’s), its name was changed to Grace St. John’s Church in 2004 when the Grace Lutheran Church joined the St. John’s Anglican congregation. An elevator was installed between the lower and upper level in 2003 and office and storage spaces were added in 2008. The lower hall has, at various times, been home to the Beavers, the Friendship Group, yoga groups, and many banquets luncheons.
Judging from the dedication and resolve of the present congregation, the building will be around for many years of service to come. All are invited to join the congregation on Sunday, November 1, at 10:00 a.m. for a celebratory service and refreshments.
