  • Eleven years ago a sign was erected on Old Bainbridge Road near Shade Farm Road, 4.4 miles north of the Quincy city limits, proclaiming that St. John Church of God in Christ was coming soon.

    "The sign was up there so long that it became an embarrassment because people kept asking when the church was coming," said Rev. Ronald McCloud, the church’s pastor. Neither McCloud nor the congregation, which includes about 100, never gave up. The church, McCloud said, has been a part of their vision since they acquired the 10-acre property in 1995.
