RESURRECTION LUTHERAN CHURCH CELEBRATES 50th ANNIVERSARY MILESTONE
RESURRECTION LUTHERAN CHURCH CELEBRATES
50th ANNIVERSARY MILESTONE
On Sunday, September 10, 2017, the congregation of Resurrection Lutheran Church held their 50th Anniversary celebration with a special worship service and brunch at the Catawba Island Club.
Special guests included Pastor Erwin Streng, who served as the first pastor from 1967 to 1977, Pastor Mark Chavez-General Secretary of the North American Lutheran Church, Pastor Robert Butcher-retired pastor of Firelands Presbyterian Church, and Pastor Janine Dress who was ordained at Resurrection in 1982. Also participating in the special worship service were Reverend Lisa Peterson-retired pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Port Clinton and a current member of Resurrection, member John Hazzard, and current Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Kurt W. Borows.
In May of 1966, the American Lutheran Church, Michigan District Convention was held at St. John Lutheran Church in Port Clinton, Ohio. At this convention, Rev. Clarence Larson of the Toledo Board of Home Missions announced plans for a mission church on Catawba Island.
Ground was broken for the church building in August of 1966 and the church was dedicated on March 5, 1967, as RESURRECTION LUTHERAN CHURCH. The Rev. Dr. Kurt W. Borows has been serving as pastor since January 1, 1978.
Today, there are 10 charter members still with Resurrection. They are: Ron Bauman, Don & Mitzi Gulau, Hank Gurtz, Dr. Robert & Norma Nehls, Herb & Jackie Roder and John & Helen Jean Rofkar.
The church is located at 2370 NE Catawba Road, Port Clinton. There is a dedicated website at: www.ResurrectionOnCatawba.com. Resurrection Lutheran Church is a charter member of the North American Lutheran Church. Worship service and Sunday school start at 9:00 a.m.
