History of our Church Bell – “The Bell With a Peal”
This bell became available in 1968 when two churches in Rosendale merged. The Methodist members did not want the bell sold to an an que dealer. Mr Milton Kuehl from our congrega on brought this bell idea for us to consider a pur- chase. Maurice Bobholz and Lloyd Gatzke recommended to the coun- cil that we buy the bell. This was approved and purchased for $ 450 from the Rosendale Church.
Shortly therea er, Maurice, Rich- ard Tharman, Lloyd and sons Rob- ert and Ken went to Rosendale to get the bell. A crane with a 75 boom was rented. The rst job was removing the belfry tower. A chain saw was used and the tower li ed o . We were working in about a foot of dove do-do.
Special Gift Opportunities

You may adopt an entire item or designate toward a room. Forms, price lists and envelopes for this purpose are in the narthex.
We are presently reviewing prices for our furnishings to purchases and back-rolled with quality items at lower prices. Once approved, we will update our price list. a seal coat and two coats of paint. The cost of this painting project is not included in our building fund. It needs to be done professionally, rather than by volunteers. We are seeking a special gi of $6,700 to fund this important project.

Special gifts may be given in honor of a blessing or in memory of a loved one and will be included in the dedication booklet.
