The Installation Service for Pastor Dennis Maves at the Alliance Church in Curtiss, Wisconsin was held on Sunday afternoon, January 16, 1977.

In attendance to help in the service were former pastors and their families, Pastor and Mrs. Lester Kringle, now of Green Bay, Pastor and Mrs. Woodrung of Waconia, Minnesota. Pastor and Mrs. Stan Aukemia from the Marshfield Alliance Church, and Pastor and Mrs. Harry Landaw of the Owen Alliance Church, were also in attendance.

Pastor James Stone of Menomonie gave the charge to the new pastor during the service.

At the conclusion of the service the congregation held a mortgage burning ceremony, with Pastor Kringle and Pastor Woodrung holding the mortgage and with the ashes falling into an old communion cup.

A painting of the church was then present to Pastor Maves and his wife, which had been painted by Mrs. George Shattuck of Wausau.

After the service a lunch was served to all the many friends and members who attended.
