St. John’s is celebrating 50 years of ministry in Naples during 2020! During that time, many lives have been transformed by the love of Jesus and one another. This new life, empowered by the Holy Spirit, is full of excitement, struggle and joy as people receive mercy, healing and hope in every dimension of life!
Our Golden 50th Anniversary is incredibly special with the Biblical theme of gold highlighting this!
- 7 Hebrew words are used for gold symbolizing perfection!
- It is from a root word which means shimmer or shine!
- Gold sometimes refers to spiritual purity and glory!
- Revelations uses gold 22 times!
As we remember our past, embrace the present and look in hope to our future, may we be encouraged by the inspiring example of St. John’s saints who have gone before us. Their faith remained strong thru heartache and triumph, tears and laughter, struggle and success. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hb. 12:1)
May St. John’s 50th Anniversary be a Golden Celebration that shines to the glory of God and blesses many!
