Ways To Help Serve for this Year of Celebration

History Photographs

If you have any church-related photographs from 1974- present, please bring them to the church. There will be an envelope/file in the office for you to place them in. Please identify people, events, and dates if you have them. If you would like these photographs returned to you, please place them in your envelope and put a “return to” name on the envelope.

Louise Molieri will be scanning these photos for our history book and slide shows beginning now and through the first few months of 2024.

Helping with Our Church History

The church’s Sesquicentennial Committee is looking for help with updating the history records of our church for the anniversary celebration planned for next summer. Folks can work independently or with a partner on small segments of history.


Please get in touch with Laryce Nitsch if you have questions or would like to help.
