Johnson Hall is great for large group gatherings, receptions, family reunions, worship times and even day-long church outings.
Johnson Hall is named after Clarence and Myrtle Johnson, Lois Klawitter’s parents who donated the first 90 acres of land for the development of a ministry center. The panoramic view from this majestic room will cause you to be in awe of God’s beautiful creation. Its 60′ span with huge log beams in the open log truss roof structure draws the eyes upward and causes the mind to say, “How does that stay up there?”
Johnson Hall is the upper level of the Fellowship Center. Johnson Hall is air-conditioned, contains a large kitchen, a huge fieldstone fireplace and a handicap accessible bathroom. A basic built-in sound system is available if needed. The wrap-around deck off two sections of the building makes sitting outdoors great on those long summer nights. Firewood for campfires is available for purchase on site.
