Nordland Lutheran Church is celebrating its 125th Anniversary on the weekend of July 10 and July 11.
On Saturday, July 10, there will be a pie and ice cream social in the church parish hall at 3:00 pm. There will also be a hymn sing and outdoor games for all during this time. A light supper will be provided by the Luther League that evening with a free will offering. This will be a great time to reminisce and visit with members and friends. It can also be a time of touring the church and seeing all that has stayed the same, but also the many changes.
Sunday, July 11, will begin with a celebratory worship service at 10:30 am. Following the worship service, a free will dinner will be served at the City Hall. The menu will include Swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes and gravy and lefse. (RSVP required.) Following the meal, there will be a program of memories and music back at the church. Between the meal and the program, all former pastors, as well as any descendants of the church’s founding families plan to gather at the church for photos.
Items will be available for purchase during the celebration weekend. At the current time, items to be offered are a Nordland Lutheran Church history book, Christmas ornaments and various clothing items.
