Bethany Lutheran Celebrates 100 Years


STORDEN -- One hundred years after Bethany Lutheran Church in Storden was founded, the congregation is welcoming back former members and pastors to commemorate the event on Sunday.

Founded in January 1913 under the leadership of the Rev. J. Lewis, Bethany Lutheran Church hosted a handful of services in a different building before a church structure was constructed at the current location in 1914. The building was replaced in 1930, and the front entrance updated in 1981.
