Celebrating 175 years: 1848-2023
Amanda Roedl hangs the first of 12 new banners that she and her daughter, Kaley, are making to celebrate our anniversary.
February Celebration Activity: Fried Chicken Dinner
From 1971 to 2018, our congregation raised money with a fried chicken dinner on the first Sunday of February. On February 5, 2023, Nancy Kruse and her family hosted a fried chicken dinner with all of our traditional sides. They served members of the congregation in memory of Roger Kruse and in honor of our 175th anniversary. Thank you to the Kruse family for your generosity and for all of the food and fellowship memories.
March Celebration Activity: Baptism Recognition
In our 175 years, hundreds of people were baptized into God's family at our baptismal font. On Sunday, March 5, many of those still living gathered again to worship in our church and visit over coffee and sweet treats after the service.
One of the highlights of the day was when Delbert Kueker, baptized in 1931, met and held Josie Kloepper, baptized in 2022.
