The Rev. Daniel E. Zielske, recently installed pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.) and St. John Lutheran Church of Christie, was officially received into the North Wisconsin District of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, during the regular district convention session held in Wausau two weeks ago. He joined three other recent graduates who have accepted calls in this area, in signing the constitution before the convening body of 225 pastoral and lay delegates.

Pastor and Mrs. Zielske arrived in Greenwood July 26. They moved into the beautifully renovated parsonage, which is located on the church grounds on Eaton Street.

The congregation held a join installation service for their new Pastor on July 30th, 1961. Officiating Pastor included: The Rev. Otto W. Boettcher, vacancy pastor, who delivered the sermon; The Rev. F. H. Sprengler of Dorchester, who served as Installation pastor; the Rev. F.H. Brauer of Watertown, a former pastor, was liturgist; and the Rev. Ferdinand Timler of Edgar, assisted.

An estimated 200 people were present for the service and enjoyed the reception and luch served afterward by the ladies of both congregations.
