Local church congregates to celebrate 140 years

South Santiago Lutheran Church celebrated 140 years last weekend. 20 years ago, the church was rebuilt after arson destroyed the previous church. Over 220 former and current members joined in the celebration. A history lesson on the origins of the church was shared by Walt Munsterman after the worship service and the Ladies Aid put on an amazing spread of food including grilled hamburgers and a plethora of salads and desserts. People enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane and visiting during the Lutheran smorgasbord.
