125th Anniversary

Glen Flora Lutheran Church was blessed to celebrate its 125th anniversary the weekend of August 7th-8th. Despite the rain throughout the weekend, we were blessed to celebrate our past, and look forward to our future under our theme verse: “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad indeed.” (Psalm 126:3)

Seven of our former pastors returned to take part in our festival Worship Service and other events: Rev. Arvid Jovaag (1961-1966), Rev. Thomas Heyd (1966-1969), Rev. Dan Holm (1971-1974), Rev. Gary Uttech (1986-1988), Rev. Sam Kochel (1988-1996), Rev. Dwight Hanson (2004-2018), and Rev. Bert Schultz (2010-2019). An overflow crowd of over 250 people joined us for the service.

We wish to express our thanks to all of those who made our 125th anniversary a weekend to remember:

-Our Heavenly Father for the many blessings our Congregation has and continues to receive;

-Pastor Christopher Martin for all of his help and leadership

-Our Anniversary Planning Committee: Pastor Martin, Connie Gasior, Sue Haskins, Lila Jones, and Martha Johnson)

-Everyone who helped with the various church improvement projects

-Everyone who worked during the Anniversary Celebration

-The Adult and Children’s Choirs

-Our former pastors who returned to celebrate with us

-Hope Lutheran Church Women (and a few guys, too) who helped with serving our Dinner

-Members and friends of Glen Flora Lutheran Church for your continued support.
