August 2019 New Paint and Carpet for St. John’s Chapel

As of the end of August 2019 St. John’s has new paint and carpet in our Chapel!  It is a wonderful upgrade that we have waited for years to see happen!  The Chapel has a new look and it’s beauty is stunning to the eye!  What a wonderful place to worship God!  Sit back in the pew and take in the stain glass windows that radiate as the sun shines into the Chapel!  Or just sit back and contemplate God’s presence in his House!  A special thanks to Pastor Hank, his wife Dianne, Larry and Joni and all the volunteers who made this happen!  Oh, by the way, two of our pews were moved up into the Chapel Choir loft to make way for wheelchairs up front to improve our ADA accessibility!  Combined with our elevator lift and ramps outside and in the basement we have reason to be proud!  God Bless St. John’s Lutheran in Salt Lake City!
