Globe church concludes 125th anniversary celebration

The 125th anniversary of the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church was hardly a passing affair.

The members of the congregation of the church located in the Globe area northwest of Neillsville have spent the better part of the year celebrating the church's beginning in 1882, as well as the 125 years, and seven generations of families, since then.

Following the celebration's theme of "The Constant Melody of His Mercy," a special commemorative 60-page booklet chronicling the church's long history has been printed for congregation members. The spiral-bound publication contains historic pictures of the church founders. It continues on, taking note of the church's first marriage, first baptism, and burial. In its concluding pages, the booklet identifies present officials and members of the church, and includes colorful pictures of church sponsored activities over the years.

Last January, the church began holding the first of its 125th Anniversary Services in which one of the former pastors of the Church delivered a sermon.

This past Sunday, "Reformation Sunday," was the last of the services. Once again, a former pastor of the church, Kevin Hanke, was there, joining in the singing of hymns, including a solo of "The Lord's Prayer."

How does one obtain a copy of the anniversary booklet?

I received a call last evening and she said that she was unable to come up with a copy of the 125th Anniversary booklet. There has been other request and she said they may print more, but was not sure when that might be.

I have some one at church checking to see if there are any still available.
