peon KOSlUTH COUNT* ADVAKCfc, ALGOtfA, IOWA Baptists at Swca City Celebrate 50 Years SIX CHARTER MEMBERS ARE AT THE EVENT By Mrs. W. G. Smith. • Swca City. Aug. 2—At least 34 towns in six stales were represented in the capacity crowds of friends and members of the First Baptist church here who gathered Sunday to observe the 50th anniversary of the church's founding. The day began with the usual Sunday school. Morning worship included music by the choir, a solo, The Holy City, by Florence Alberts, and a mixed group of young people who sang "The City Beautiful." This group included descendants of two charter members of this church and of early members of the Swedish Baptist church of Swea township. Ar- zellc Peterson, soprano. Jeanne Looft. and Arlenc Peterson, altos, Daryl Peterson and Glen Bloyer, tenors, and Merlin Berg and Lowell Larson, basses, composed the group, with Esther Smith at the piano. Miss Smith was pianist for all three services of the day. Pastor Gives Sermon. The sermon was to have been given by the Rev. B. H. Ward, ! DCS Moincs, head of Baptist work in Iowa, but he was unable to' come, his wife having fallen sick ' Saturday evening just as they i were boarding the train. i In the absence of the Rev. Mr.' Ward, the morning sermon was delivered by the pastor, the Rev.; S. A. Andersen. i The floral decorations in the church included a bouquet of gold roses in a white and gold basket with a tulle bow on the ' handle, inscribed "50th Annivcrs-' ary." Other bouquets, of garden flowers, carried out a color scheme of gold and white. ! Chicken Dinner at Noon. | At the Guild hall a chicken' dinner was served at noon to 175 guests. Mrs. Fred Peterson was at the head of the entertainment committee, and sub-committees were in charge of tables. The table decorations were yellow crepe paper streamers, yellow garden flowers, and white paper napkins with the words "50th Anniversary" stamped in gold. A "social hour followed the dinner, and a center of interest was the display of objects of historical interest on view in an anteroom of the church. This collection included the church's first communion table; the '.communion cloth made by a charter member, Mrs. Louis Swarison; the old communion set ,oJ" plotters,' goblets, and ewer used by the old Swedish Baptist oHirrcli bf'Swcti township; th^;.original record books of the church, dating frbm the organization meeting of July 29, 1894, in the handwriting o£ Mrs: Olof Pearson, the first church clerk; the first secretary's, books of the Ladies' 'Guild; the old'hymnals used by the church; the World War I service flag; a collection of Guild yearbooks dating from 1916; pictures of former members; and other mementoes. History of the Church. Available to the public were 500 copies of the history of tne church a 25-page booklet bound in golden yellow, including photographs of the old church, the remodeled church, the Guild in 1907, the Guild in 1944, and the old Swea township Swedish Baptist church, as well as pictures of Rev. and Mrs. S. A. Andersen and son Gene, and of the church's missionary couple, the Rev. and Mrs. A. T. Olson, Nigeria, Africa. Historical articles in the book include the history of the First Baptist church of Swea City, and the history of the Ladies' Guild, both written by Esther Smith, and an account of the Swedish Baptist church of Swea township, adapted from a paper written by the late Mrs. Eric Erickson for the state conference of that denomination. The booklet is dedicated to the 35 young men and one young woman from the congregation who are in the armed forces. The booklet also contains a roster of the church's pastors, the list of service men and women, a sketch showing the church's missionary goal, a list of the charter members, and a list of present church officers. The Afternoon Program. The afternoon program included music by the choir, piano solo by Mrs. Chas. Faugust, Guckeen, Minn.; a quartet, The Church by the Side of the Road, sung by Florence Alberts, Sam Link, and Mr. and Mrs. Claude Faugust (Mrs. Faugusl is a granddaughter of the late Mrs. Victor Eckholm, a charter member of the old Swea church); and a vocal solo The 90th Psalm, sung by Esther Smith, with her mother, Mrs. Walter G. Smith, at the piano. The church clerk, Mrs, Ray Sperbeck, read letters from absent members and service men, but time did not permit the reading of more than a few of the letters received. These are to be mimeographed for later distribu- . don to anyone interested. Niue Liying Charier Members. A short mx'yuUion ^ervi'jc icj families of persons in the armed forces was concluded with the singing of God Bless Our Lads, by the choir.
