UCC Conference Minister Franz Rigert will be overseeing the 10 a.m. service, followed by an authentic German meal at 1 p.m. A special ceremony will be held to commemorate the 150th anniversary.

The church is taking reservations for the meal; contact Mary Jane McEathron at 715-273-3118 if interested. The church will be taking reservations until Sept. 20.

The meal is free and open to the public. The church will not be asking for free will donations either.
