First United "Monday Spotlight"

Our 175th Jubilee Celebration Continues!

As you've probably heard, we're remembering and celebrating our 175 year history all year. As we begin a new month Sunday (3/3), we'll be sharing a special look back at another stretch of our history - 1889 through 1949. Remember, we could use your help with several parts of our plans.

> We're creating a Church Family Cookbook to be completed in time to be used as Christmas gifts! Please share your best recipes with us! We really need them by March 31 so we can compile them in time. Please contact Jen Van De Hei (920-660-0921) with any questions.

> We're still looking for church history treasures to share. We'd love to borrow any old church-related photos, documents, videos, or other special memories you have. We promise to be very careful, make copies, and return them safely.

> Every Sunday after church, we'll be setting out some old photos for you to look through and help identify. We're hoping you can help add some names or dates. PLEASE watch for them every week and share your memories.

You can contact Mark Young (*see Communications email link below) with any questions or ideas about all the church history materials we're collecting. Thanks!
