Looking back on 100 years at the Lutheran Church

Petersburg’s Lutheran Church is celebrating its 100th anniversary. There are events planned throughout the year to commemorate the centennial, starting off with a Birthday Dinner this weekend (2/24).

Petersburg’s first Lutheran congregation gathered to worship in 1913. Like many religious institutions, the church serves the needy and the broader community of Petersburg as well as its own congregation. The Church’s theme for this year is “Celebrate and Serve”

Matt Lichtenstein sat down at Mountin View Manor with Pastor Mike Schwarte and several longtime congregation members to talk about their church:
