On October 14th, 2012, we held our very popular staple event “Oktoberfest” following our special Anniversary worship service to usher in our 126th year of serving Christ. To help us celebrate this spiritual milestone, we graciously welcomed Our special guest Preacher, The Rev. Luther Gottlieb Albrecht, accompanied by his wife Janet, formerly Janet Goyer of Holy Cross Church.
Pastor Albrecht has just begun his retirement after having served Christ in his vineyard for over 45 years. Our celebration needed just the right preparation for our German feast and our friends at the VFW Post 6863 knew just what to bring. We enjoyed the best Bratwurst, Wiener Schnitzel, delicious fried Chicken, German potato salad, Sauerkraut, Green beans and a special house salad!
Along with all the fantastic food and German music, we had a wide array of desserts to choose from, as well as, very authentic German beer provided as always by our resident stout master, Russell Chibe. We had some awesome themed baskets on our raffle table as well as a beautiful door prize of a music box with Angels atop. Pastor’s wife Ruth won the esteemed German Basket and a special donation of her half was made by our 50/50 raffle winner Beverly Raddatz for a $116 thankoffering to her beloved Holy Cross.
Way to go Bev, and a sincere thank you to all who came to share in our worship and our fellowship. May God bless us as we enter our 126th year of serving Christ in our community and beyond!
