a vision in process

St. John’s Chapel has been looking for God’s vision for three years. In that time, we have talked in small groups and in large groups. We have talked about hard things as well as the dreams we have for The Chapel.


We are currently in conversation with Partners in Vision, a program of the National UCC under the Church Building and Loan Foundation, to help us make our vision a reality. They have the expertise to help us make our vision come to life -- a community center where a church worship and serves the community.

On February 16, 2020, we will have a Special Congregational Meeting to consider the proposed resolution shown below.
