Bremen Church 95 Years Old

Descendants of Founder and First Minister Here to Help Celebrate 95th Anniversary of St. Paul’s

A capacity audience assembled for the two festival services Sunday celebrating the 95th anniversary of the organization of St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran church. In the morning service. Dr. M. F. Kretzmann, Kendallville, secretary of the Missouri Synod, was the guest speaker.

Basing his sermon on I Peter 2, 5-10, he called attention to the fact that these words are applicable to St. Paul’s congregation. "It is not the spaciousness of the building that makes for a true and strong church. It is not the number of names on the church record," he said, "the true strength of the congregation consists in the number of those who, wholeheartedly have accepted Christ as their Savior, who love, honor and serve Him to the best of their ability." He pointed out that the Lord had bestowed great privileges upon the anniversary congregation, that those in Christ are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, favored of God for greater blessings. "But," he said, "those great privileges carry with them great duties. We readily accept the blessings, but are all to ready to shirk our duties."

In the afternoon reunion service Professor O. Krueger, president of the Concordia College, Fort Wayne, chose for his text: Psalm 50, 14. "This congregation in celebrating this anniversary has reached a hilltop in the life of the church. The view, looking back, is wonderful indeed. Innumerable have been the blessings of God." He called upon the membership to look back, to inquire if the vows of service, devotion and consecration had been paid; then to look to the future with the vow of improvement.

The roll call including one hundred and eighty-two names beginning with the year 1914 received a response from one hundred and ten. Honored guests present at this service were three grandsons, one granddaughter, on great-granddaughter and four great-great grandchildren of Pastor G. K. Schuster, the founder of St. Paul’s, descendants of Mrs. Hild, of Elmhurst, Ill., a daughter of Pastor Schuster. Other guests present came from various parts of Ohio, Fort Wayne, Warsaw, Plymouth, Culver, Elkhart, Woodland, Mishawaka and South Bend.

Special anthems were sung by the school children and the church choir, under direction of M. F. Buescher, at both services.

The ladies Aid of the congregation served refreshments during the social in the church hall after the afternoon services.

The anniversary committee in charge of arrangements consisted of Richard Miller, chairman, Victor Miller and Raymond Kiefer. The pastor, Rev. E. G. Dobelstein, served in an advisory capacity.

Items of Interest Reproduced from the Files of the Enquirer

Twenty Years Ago

Clem Balsley, well known farmer of Bremen, was united in marriage last week last week with Mrs. Eva Lovina Guise, daughter of the late David Harrington, recorder of Marshall County. For some time she was her father’s deputy and has a wide acquaintance.

M. Lowenstine & Son, who recently celebrated their twentieth anniversary in Bremen, are about to greatly expand their business. This week they closed a lease for ten years for a large room on South Michigan street, South Bend, and shortly after the first of the year will open a department store in it.

A son, Robert Oliver, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Ringle.

Willis Dietrich is again on crutches. Having only recently recovered from an injury to his foot suffered in a baseball game a month ago, he sprained his knee painfully in the Legion football game Sunday.

Mr. and Mrs. Bradford D. Place received Tuesday, three years ago to a day after their son, Ortho, was killed in action in France, his trunk an other personal belongings. For some time it had been doubted whether the articles, prized as mementos, would be recovered, and the parents were greatly pleased to receive them. Three years is a long time, yet when it is considered where and under what conditions the articles were left and the disordered state of the world since then, it is not surprising.

Thirty Years Ago

"Snow, Snow, beautiful" – From sublime to the ridiculous is but a single step. Yesterday Herman Bartels was mowing his lawn.

It is the first snow of the season of any consequence and began melting as soon as the sun rose.

LaPaz is about to have a bank, with a capital stock of $15,000 put up by two men from Hobart who are to operate it and a number of men in and around LaPaz. That village certainly has a telegraph prevaricator. A story is current this week that the B & O has bought a big tract of land east of LaPaz and will build large shops and yards there. So far as can be learned the only foundation for the story is the fact that coal chutes are to be built there.

A dinner in honor of Miss Bernice Ringle’s fifth birthday was given Sunday at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Homer Ringle, of North Street. All four grandparents were present and her maternal grandmother Walter, who is nearing seventy-eight has no other great grandchild.
