The Finished Product

OK, with the chancel furniture and altar restored to its place, the final photo of the new chancel at St John the Apostle Anglican Church, Clinton Township, Michigan.  Sure, everyone is very proud of the clean new look.  If some old "before" photos can be located, maybe we can do a "before" and "after".

Paul And The Underground Church

Meanwhile, as we said, it was a very busy week at St John the Apostle.  It was time for Vacation Bible School.  One 12 year old in attendance declared, "This was the best VBS ever!"  With extraordinary costumes, sets in various rooms, dozens of kids in attendance, and a huge staff of adults served as teaching characters.  It was amazing.  So realistic, most of the kids lost themselves each evening in the experience of being a Christian in the first century.  Memories shared and deep, heart-felt lessons learned that will last a life time.

Take a look, it is worth the browse.

New Tile Sanctuary At St John The Apostle Parish

After almost 5 years of celebrating the Eucharist on rather worn, old blue carpet, the people of St John the Apostle, Clinton Township, MI decided it was time to finally make the sanctuary what everyone has known it could be for a long, long time.  Thanks to the efforts of a dozen volunteers, and approximately 400 man hours later, we show you a quick glimpse of the progress.  It has been a very busy week at St John.
