On April 24, 1892 ten families (five of them were Meisenholders) organized Salem Lutheran Church of Parkston SD. This year we will be recognizing the 125th anniversary of the church with two separate events. The first celebration will be a more low key event held during our usual worship time on Sunday, April 23 at our 9:00 am.
We will begin that Sunday by looking back at our history and we will recognize our life-long members. From there we will move forward by having an affirmation of baptism for our current members. The worship will be followed by cake and fellowship in the fellowship hall.
We urge you to make plans now to join us for our even grander celebration on Sunday, August 27. On that day we will worship at 10:00 am. We will be joined by dignitaries such as South Dakota Synod Bishop Rev. David Zellmer and previous pastors who served Salem Lutheran in the past.
After worship we will go to the Parkston Legion Hall for a catered lunch to be served at 12:00 noon. We will then return to the church for an afternoon of music and sharing of stories.
We are also working on updating the history book that was published during the centennial year. We will have a new cookbook available to purchase as well as Christmas ornaments featuring the church anniversary.
Join us this year in looking back and moving forward!
