St. John’s UCC to Celebrate 135 years of Ministry to Creston
St. John's Church, at the corner of South Maple and Fremont streets, was founded Feb. 4, 1878. A church building was built and was dedicated Aug. 11, 1878.
"St. John's has always celebrated its anniversary in August simply because planning anything in February is risky due to Iowa's unpredictable weather," said the Rev. Daniel Moore, who has been St. John's pastor since 2006. "This year we not only mark, but we are going to celebrate our 135 years of ministry to the south side of Creston."
Just in the past year alone, St. John's members have put a new cross on the top of the steeple, had the front church doors removed, refitted and reinstalled and just this month had a majority of the roof re-shingled.
