On Sunday September 11, 2016 we took part in the Annual Service at First Lutheran Church in Middleton. The church is no longer used for regular church services, it’s used mostly for weddings in the summer, but every fall there is an annual service. This year it was a special anniversary: the current church building was constructed in 1866 so this is the 150th anniversary! An addition was built in 1884 with the steeple and a new church bell. The church was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1988.
The congregation was founded in 1852, which coincidentally is the same year that the Madison Maennerchor was founded.
It was a beautiful day for the service and it was great to be there and to sing during the service. Below are a few photos; as always click on the thumbnail to see the larger image.
