Church in the Round

The ground breaking ceremony for the new Church-in-the-round was held on June 11, 1967. The St. Johns congregation met at the original church and marched to the Church grounds. The march was highlighted by a half hour 35-bell carillon concert, a donation of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Willenborg.

On October 19, 1969 the Congregation of St. John's proudly and with great thanksgiving to God, dedicated the new Church-in-the-round. It is a monument to our fathers, the founders of our Congregations, and to the glory of God. David Maxfield of Oxford, Ohio was the architect who designed the new building.

Mr. Maxfield had designed over two hundred church facilities in the Midwest. He wrote of St. John's, "This building represents the fulfillment of St. John's dream to have an adequate facility for worship, education and fellowship. I believe this was accomplished in the design and construction of the one magnificent structure. From the footing deep in the soil of Delhi Township to the top of the cross, I believe the congregation's needs for a physical plant will be met for many years. It was a challenge as an architect to design a multi- purpose building to meet the many needs of the growing church of St. John's."

Twelve massive pillars imbedded deep in the clay soil of Delhi support the church's structure and represent the twelve apostles on whose lives the early church grew. There are two bands surrounding the church. The first band, the Crown of Glory, graces the top of the church from which rises the tower supporting the cross.

The second band, the Crown of the Faithful, goes entirely around the circumference of the church roof. The architect designed the lower band to be symbolic of the many people comprising the membership of St. John's. This band represents the priesthood of all believers who uphold the Christian faith. It is also symbolic of the joy experienced in the fellowship as a member of St. John's Church.
