Greenfield Lutheran Church in Harmony will be hosting a festive 100th anniversary celebration of the present church building on Sunday, September 30, at the 9:00 a.m. service.

An exciting service is planned, filled with music, children’s choir, senior choir and a guest pastor, John Lingen, a former pastor of Greenfield. The Rev. Kyle Jackson will also participate in the service.

A replica of the original cornerstone, which is associated with the Stevens’ families will also be presented. The church will celebrate this historical event, which dates back to their great-grandfather, Torkel Traim, who donated the original cornerstone. The replica cornerstone will be brought to the church in an old fashioned way – horse and wagon.

Following the service, there will be an heritage rommegrot luncheon. The menu will include sandwiches, rommegrot, cheese platter, hard boiled eggs, dark bread, cookies, lemonade and coffee. The luncheon is free, but donations will be accepted.

It took a year to build the church with the original cornerstone being set on September 29, 1912. The building was completed in August 1913, and the dedication service was held on September 21, 1913. During the upcoming year, there will be other events celebrating the building of the church. The year will conclude with a redidication service on September 22, 2013.

All are cordially invited to join the Greenfield congregation as it celebrates this special event.
