At this conference our members will decide:

Whether to sell the residential property located at Glenview Ave., Royal Oak, Michigan

Whether to grant the Board of Trustees final authority to sell the Edmund Ave residential property and the St. John’s campus and its adjoining land within an established price range.

Our plans are quickly unfolding!

A RE-NEWED BUILDING FOR A NEW VISION/h3>  Our New Wave Plan being made concrete

A plan has been in the works to renew our church building, to accommodate our New Wave plan for worship, outreach spiritual growth, and fellowship.

To see the New Wave plan click here

We’ve got an architect refining our plan and need to know how much we can successfully complete. So, we had a feasibility study.

The study was completed and formally presented to an all-church gathering on Wednesday, September 3. About 40 were in attendance.

In summary, our consultant conservatively estimated that the congregation is able to support a capital fund program of $650,000-850,000. Add to that, the proceeds of property sales estimated at $1.3 million; so he believes the congregation could sustain a project of $1.95 million to $2.15 million over three years. He believes that the congregation should undertake a renovation; but cautions that it should not start until the properties are sold.

A look at ourselves…now and then


Look at your life as one looking into a mirror.

   What are your loves?  What do you believe?

What must you do?

Then look at your future

  What will your life look like years from now?

You are on your way.

 Now, look at us.

What’s the look of our church?

  Our life together, The way we are in the world?

And what will God make of us?

This is God’s dream

Our vision We “Live Into”

We are part-way-there We are on our way.
