Lewiston-Clarkston church celebrates 100 years | Events
In 1912, a group of Lewiston-Clarkston natives started a church congregation and 100 years later, the current members joined to celebrate that anniversary.
St John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Clarkston, Washington went all out for the centennial jubilee. The tables were decorated with fresh flowers and soon covered in everyone’s best home-made dish. There was a DVD slideshow with 100 years of faces and events. Some former Pastors and their families trekked all the way from the Midwest to be there for the celebration.
The members gave speeches, some about the construction of their current church home in the 1960’s and the way they all pulled together to have a place to call their own.
Members are looking forward to another 100 years, when maybe the descendents from this group will be celebrating much like they did last Sunday.
