old churchThe Upper Church 125th Anniversary: 2017
Planning Continues
The planning Committee is making great progress towards having a wonderful day of celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Upper Church on August 20th. Invitations have gone out to former pators, interim pastors, and intern pastors. We have received many responses and are hopeful that many of these people will join us.
There is a lot of excitement as we look forward to hosting the Grieg Chorus as part of our special music on that day as well. The reception following the service will be outside and will be a rain or shine event. Curt Hanson has made a large tent available to us and we will need some help with putting that up on Saturday, the 19th and again after the event with taking it down. So, with that in mind, we plan to have a sign up in the Narthex.
For all of you strong guys, please consider helping. It shouldn’t take too long, but your help is needed! Also, for the bakers of our congregation. We will need some help with baked goods. Another sign up will be in the narthex for this. Please consider baking some cookies, bars, or if you are able to provide some norwegian goodies, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help in making this a memorable occasion!

125th Anniversary Save the Date
August 20th!
Planning for a fun day of celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Upper Church is continuing. We have invited former pastors, interim and intern pastors. We are hopeful that many of them will be able to come and help us celebrate. Please “save the date” of August 20th and plan to share this special service of wonderful music, history and ice cream!
