It is an exciting time in the life of the St. John Divine Community as we embark on this new chapter in the fulfillment of God’s vision for the future of this parish. Our journey will be a community effort and the family of St. John the Divine is ready, able and willing to honor God by building up His new Home in Jacksonville on the site of our 20-acre Beach Boulevard property.
Dear Beloved Church Family, We would like to provide you with an update on the St. John the Divine Capital Campaign. We now have pledges totaling over $4 million and have collected over $1.39 million to date. We would like to again thank the well over 200 families who have committed their financial support to the campaign. We continue to strive to achieve 100% participation by our Community. It is not too late to make a commitment to the Campaign - please make a pledge today.
We continue our journey closer to our vision of building our new spiritual home on our beautiful 20-acre property on Beach Boulevard. On Sunday, May 19, 2013 immediately after Church, the Parish Council will hold a very important Special General Assembly regarding the recommended next steps towards our new Church facility. The Millennium Building Committee and Capital Campaign Committee will present to the Community their recommendations regarding the building plan, financial plan, milestones and schedule for our new Church facility. We encourage all members of the Community to attend this very important Special General Assembly regarding our future.
Our Community is blessed and continues to grow. Once again, now is the time…make a commitment and get involved in the future of St. John the Divine. We encourage everyone to attend the Special General Assembly on Sunday, May 19, 2013.
We need everyone, each according to their ability and capacity, to make a financial commitment.
