Not only is St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Panama City, FL celebrating its 100th birthday, but it is in the midst of a revitalizing renovation to more effectively address the needs of people with physical challenges. One important aspect of the renovation involves replacing the wooden pews with more comfortable cathedral chairs. The chairs can be easily moved and arranged individually or in orderly rows, depending upon patterns of worship and/or the type of gathering. Each chair contains a niche to hold a prayer book and a hymnal. The wood finish will closely match the wood existing in the church. Each chair will cost $240.
Anyone who has been blessed by St. Andrew’s Episcopal through baptism, marriage, funeral of a loved one, attending St. Andrew’s as a child, etc. may purchase a chair(s) in honor of the person or in memory of the event. A plaque with names of contributors inscribed on it will be hung on a wall.
Checks can be mailed to St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 1608 Baker Court, Panama City, FL 32401. Make checks payable to St. Andrew’s Construction Account with “chairs” on the memo line. Please also indicate if the purchase is in honor or in memory of a special person or event held at St. Andrew’s. For more information, please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 850-763-7636.
