     What is significant about the year 1868?  Andrew Johnson was the president of the United States, and our nation was going through Reconstruction after the Civil War.  More importantly to us, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church was founded on November 5, which means this year is the 150th anniversary of our ministry!

     This is significant not only for us, but also for the community because Holy Trinity was the first church to be established within the Borough of Ephrata.

     Our Anniversary Committee consists of Lois Beck, Deb Martin, Phyllis Peters, Barry Kreider, Norm Wangman, and church staff.  We have been busy planning a celebration!

     The date of Sunday, November 4 – All Saints Day has passed and we had a great event (150th Pictures).  We had one service that day followed by a banquet to celebrate the milestone.  Former pastors were invited to participate in the liturgy and join us in fellowship.  More details on this will be forthcoming.

     Another project we were working on is updating an addendum to the Church History book which was written by Milt Jacoby for the 125th Anniversary.  The committee is compiling highlights of the last 25 years.




     Our committee welcomes your input.  If you have any ideas of something special to honor this milestone, please talk with any member of the committee.
