99th Church Anniversary

The St. John Church is 99 years old!
Having survived the 1918 Influenza Pandemic, thirteen inspired Christians formed a fellowship in the Dalworth community of Grand Prairie from which St. John was born, in 1921. When we look back over time, St. John has always understood the relevancy of the Church.
  • The Church is timeless and transcendent.
  • The Church has prevailed through pandemics and perils.
  • The Church is everlasting and eternal.”
Let’s celebrate together!
