We are currently meeting occasionally with the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Ida Grove, Iowa. Some special services are planned as joined congregations, such as World Wide Communion, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and other times when our worship leaders may need to be gone. We have helped each other with fund raisers and built one float for our two communities' parades. Our hope is to continue to work together frequently.
This building was constructed in 1920, the third of our Church organization, which was established in 1877. In 2000, the Congregation celebrated the opening of the new addition, which includes elevator accessibility to the upper and lower levels, two new bathrooms, a welcoming lobby, a new pastor's office, and a classroom/meeting room.
We are proud of the handiwork of the craftspeople that helped with our addition. But the celebration was in the whole congregation's involvement in preparing old bricks to go into new walls, in refinishing the woodwork, in painting, and in burning the mortgage papers within two years from generous member donations.
