History

When the Mission Committee was originally formed, it was called “The Mission Society.” It was organized on January 13, 1926, during the pastorate of Rev. Kehle. They met on the second Tuesday at 8:00 pm. Membership was limited to women and older girls. During the early years of the committee, they had 52 members. Officers of the original committee were Miss Edna Blader, President; Miss Erma Retzlaff, Vice President; Miss Ella Dahlke, Secretary; and Mrs. Thomas Dudzinske, Treasurer.

Currently, committee members serve a 2-year term, with no more than two consecutive terms.
