Building Committee

The Building Committee met in a preliminary meeting on April 26 in Resurrection Hall. We have begun the visioning process in consideration of location, architecture, cost, and more. Please be on the lookout for information as it is available. Jeff Lamberson was unanimously chosen to serve as Chair for the Building Committee.

St. John's Parish Church Building Fund

Donations toward our future permanent space may be made directly to St. John's Parish Church with "Building Fund" in the memo line or by giving online and selecting "Building Fund".
Please remain in prayer for the Lord to reveal our permanent space on Johns Island.

Prayer for our Parish

as we look forward to a permanent home
Dear Heavenly Father,

Together we are united with the saints of the household of God;

built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,

with Jesus Christ himself being the cornerstone.

In Him our church is being joined together,

and is growing into a holy temple of the Lord.

In Christ alone, we are being built together

into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
