150th  Anniversary

(From June 12th Bulletin)

It is indeed a singular privilege to have the opportunity to build an adequate House of Worship. Not every generation has this privilege.  Therefore, it is with a deep sense of gratitude to God, who had walked so closely with us, that we dedicated this weekend to the glory of His Holy Name.

We hope this weekend brought you many fond memories of your faithful service to Him in the past,  and may they also encourage you to continued unselfish service to Him in the future as we march along together to build His Kingdom
in the hearts of men.

Thank You!

Many people have contributed to the success of this 150th Anniversary Celebration. We extend a special word of thanks:

To the 150th Anniversary Steering Committee: Pastor Allen Campbell, Roberta Josephson, Scott Josephson, Terri Myhre, Earl Skaar, Sandy Tolk, and Gayle VanVooren.

To the participating Pastors Allen Campbell, Gerald Staehling, Tom Kolden, Timothy Larson, John Thorstensen, and Dennis Orsen

To the many volunteers who have helped our custodian Jason Johnson in preparation with cleaning, painting and organizing our church building and landscaping.  To those volunteers who worked with the designing and marketing of apparel, those that helped our secretary Chris Pesch with the design of fliers and bulletins and to those who helped Brian Jeremiason with information and pictures for our pictorial directory.
