St. Paul Lutheran Church in Aurelia will be celebrating "75 Years in Christ," on Oct. 14 and 15. The theme and logo, "Walking With The Lord," was designed by Cindy Suhr.
On Saturday evening, Oct. 14, a banquet will be held to kick-off the celebration at Western Iowa Technical Community College in Cherokee at 6 p.m. All former confirmands and current members are invited to attend.
Sons of the congregation, Rev. Rodney Otto and Rev. Dan Wehrspann are invited to be a part of the celebration.
Rev. David Renfro, former pastor, will be part of the 9:30 a.m. Sunday service and a social hour will follow the service in the fellowship hall.
A special project for the Diamond Jubilee is a current church directory. Also, LWML is dedicating a cookbook for the 75th anniversary and a quilt will be donated that was assembled by Leona Ehrhardt, a deceased member of LWML, and will be auctioned off at a silent auction. Suncatchers and quart crocks are also being sold, with the crocks being an LYF project.
The mission project is "Chapel Project in Ethiopia" and will encourage the LCMS partnership with the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY) by providing funds for roofs for their chapels. The goal is to provide the funds for four roofs which cost $250 each.
Everyone is invited to attend this special celebration.
