Centennial Celebration

St. Peter's Lutheran Church

The following information and photos were copied from the 1967 50th Anniversary Booklet


Still another merger occurred at this time, one that cut across synodical lines and united three great Lutheran Church bodies, including the former American Lutheran Church, of which St. Peter was a member, the Evangelical Lutheran Church and the United Evangelical Lutheran Church. Later, a fourth, the Lutheran Free Church also joined the merged Church, now known as The American Lutheran Church. Thus Germans, Norwegians and Danes began a new era of closer unity and brotherhood in service together on a wider scale than ever before in the history of the Lutheran Church in America.

Pastor Jandrey's ministry was also marked by certain improvements in the physical plant of the Church. Stained glass windows were contracted for in October of 1961. Final installation and dedication was achieved by April of 1963. In December of that same year in 1963 the church spire was erected and pointed towards the heavens. In 1964 Pastor Jandrey received a Call from a parish at Cookesville, Wisconsin, and felt led to accept it and thus tendered his resignation which the congregation regretfully accepted, terminating his ministry in this parish. 

 Rev. Clarence Nagel was called as pastor of the parish March 1, 1965. He served approximately a year and a half and gave strong impetus to Christian education and training in Sunday School at Luther League. On Oct. 1, 1966 he tendered his resignation and terminated his ministry to the congregation.
