St. John's Celebrates 150 Years
Join us! All of St. John's Church, School and Childcare community celebrates the 150th Anniversary of our St. John's.
People from near and far, friends and family, attended special events to honor the anniversary!
St. John's 150th History Book
In honor of the 150th anniversary, a team of dedicated volunteers took on the task of 150 years of who, what, when, where and how. The team researched, compiled, revised and constructed a special volume of St. John's history that incorporates the material from previous histories and is the definitive reference to the present. If you'd like to request a copy, please contact the main office.
The official celebration of the 150th anniversary was on June 26, 2016 with worship followed by a luncheon. A video of the anniversary event is available. Contact the main office to request a copy.
Current members and families in St. John's Church, School and Childcare are featured in a 2016 pictorial directory. Persons who participated by having their picture taken each receive a copy of the directory. If you would like to request a copy, contact the main office. Great thanks to Gail and Jim Hanneman for coordinating the project of this milestone directory in our anniversary year!
The special quilt handcrafted to commemorate the 150 years of St. John's community is completed, dedicated and featured in our Fellowship Hall. The quilt features each of the buildings that St. John's congregation has called home over these years. The quilt also displays the bible verse that is the theme for our 150th Anniversary. Many thanks to the skilled and caring hands of the Peace by Piece Quilters at St. John's, and to Thrivent also, for the grant awarded for materials. This quilt is a lasting and beautiful tribute to our past that will remind and inspire for years to come.
150th Anniversary Cookbook
A great big THANK YOU goes out to the volunteers who helped put this book together - Charlene Kehrman, Katie Wartick, Linda Zywicki and Sandy Vick. These ladies put in many hours of data entry and proofreading time to help make this a great cookbook. We'd also like to thank Andrea Manor for starting the St. John's recipe collection many years ago and sharing it with us, as well as Peggy Frank and Judy Weber for their help with various tasks in the office.
