Burt ^^^^^^B^_ ^^^ HA^^I ^^ BH Thursday, June 29, 1967 Algona (la.) Upper I The Monitor Lone Rock Mr». Ruby HlnckUy, N«wi Published By The Upper Des Moines Publishing Co., Algona, Iowa D«nnit Wdller, Editor Dedicate New Presbyterian Church, Burt Approximately 350 persons attended the dedication services and open house at the new Presbyterian Church in Burt on Sunday afternoon. Among those attending were Rev. and Mrs. Paul K. Figge, Newhall, Iowa. Rev. Figge was pastor at the Burt Presbyterian Church from April 1, i940 to April 1, 1945. Also in attendance at the event were two parishioners who have held continuous memberships in the church for 61 years, Mr. Ray S. McWhorter and Mrs. Bertha McDonald Elvidge. For the occasion, the church was decked with approximately 20 congratulatory or memorial floral bouquets. The day's activities began with a special communion service during the morning worship service. Dedication services were held at 2 p.m. with music directed by Mrs. Erna Grover with Mrs. Leonard Stenzel at the organ and Mrs. Roscoe Mawdsley, Jr. on the piano. A vocal quartet, Norma Harms, Pat Shurban, Linda and Janet Becker also sang. Leading in the worship were the pastor, Rev. Bruce Calbreath, Rev. John Reiners, First Presbyterian Church, Lakota, and Rev. Fred J. Langenberg, General Presbyter of North Central and Northwest Presbyteries, Storm Lake, who delivered the dedication sermon. An open house followed the dedication services and guests were free to inspect the new ediface and facilities. It was in 1882, in the little prairie village of Burt, that a small group of Christians felt the need to establish a church where they might worship together and in June 1883, a church was organized. Services were held in the school until 1888. It was then that the first Presbyterian church was built at a cost of $1500, and had two rooms connected by folding doors. In April 1901, a manse was built and an addition to the church was completed in 1915. In 1929 a- Dedicate New Church nother addition on the north provided Sunday School class rooms, a choir room and a new kitchen. By 1933 the membership had grown to 200 and in June of that year the church observed its Golden anniversary. On June i>-8, 1958, the Diamond or 75th anniversary of the church was observed. As time went on and membership increased it became evident that a new church was needed and in June of 1966 ground was broken for a 44' x 84' structure. The interior contains a 60* x 44' nave with a large illuminated cross above the altar, a large foyer, pastor's study and nursery on the main floor. The ceilings are white, with side walls of a pale blue accented with a trim of darker blue. It is carpeted throughout with red carpeting. The walls of the nursery, foyer and pastor's study are of pre- finished walnut paneling. A bal- cony 24' x 44' will seat at least 60 people. There is a full basement containing a modern fully- equipped kitchen and fellowship hall and 5 Sunday School class rooms. The entire cost including the planned landscaping of the grounds yet to be done was about $75,000. The congregation should be proud of and should be congratulated on this beautiful addition to Burt.
