Just one year ago, we began the 150th Anniversary celebration of the founding of the Methodist Church in the new town of Longmont. The year brought us visits from former pastors, the district superintendent and our Bishop. Pulse articles shared memories of many longtime members. You were invited to share in the year’s expenses by purchasing souvenir items. The 150th planning committee supported plans for restoration of the stained glass window & the Blessing Box. The gift of a bench for the playground was given to be used by the neighborhood & Wild Plum. In honor of our guest speakers, donations were made to OUR Center, Hope, BUMMP & mission projects. Historic articles in the Pulse & the local newspapers reminded us of the inspiring history of our church.
As we end our celebration year, we invite you to celebrate with us again on January 23rd as we finalize our year of celebrations. We will share greetings from former pastors and/or family members of former pastors. A historic booklet has been prepared for distribution to all members. The anniversary theme of “Honor the Past – Inspire the Future” truly honored our past and our wish is to have also inspired our future.
