Our Facilities

St. John's is a jubilant, thriving church that loves to celebrate its blessings! We are equipped with many spaces available not only for our members' use, but for our community's use. We have a sanctuary that will seat 700- 800 people, a smaller, more intimate chapel that seats 75- 100 people and our new Faith Center which will seat 350. We have many rooms that will accommodate groups of all sizes including a reception hall and gymnasium.

Planning a Wedding

 

Columbarium and Prayer Garden

A columbarium is a group of small compartments, or niches, designed to hold the cremated remains of loved ones. Members, former members, ministers, former ministers of St. John's, their spouses, children, grandchildren, or parents are eligible to purchase a niche.

One niche, which holds two urns, may be purchased for $1,600 or a single for $800. An urn and granite face plate, engraved with the name of the deceased, and dates of birth and death, are included in the cost. Payment may be made in full at the time of purchase, or an optional payment plan can be discussed in private.

A Memorial Wall is available with plaques in memory of loved ones buried elsewhere. Individual wall plaques are $250 and will be inscribed with one or two names and a date. The prayer garden statues, carved in Carrara, Italy, originally resided in the church's former prayer garden, they have been retained and are part of the serene decor of the Columbarium Prayer Garden.

For more information on the Columbarium or Memorial Wall, contact Nancy Fairgrieve at nfairgrieve@stjaiken.org or call 803-648-6891.

 

The Faith Center

The Faith Center is our newest addition completed in May 2015. This space allowed our growing contemporary service to move out of the gymnasium and in to their own permanent space. The Faith Center also has classrooms upstairs that will accommodate the Foundation Youth Ministry as well as space for multipurpose use.

 

Gymnasium

We have a wonderful gymnasium that is used often for large gatherings and used by our church and community for practices and events.
