Ocheyedan Christian Reformed Church celebrates centennial
OCHEYEDAN, Iowa -- The Ocheyedan Christian Reformed Church is celebrating its centennial this weekend with special services and programs.
The church was established June 19, 1913, after six families from Orange City, Iowa, settled in the Ocheyedan area. The first church was built in 1914. In the early years of the congregation, growth was progressive but slow, affected by the two world wars, flu epidemic, drought and economic depression.
