Community in Communion – Buffalo Days Revisited

August 11, 2011

Buffalo Days featured a new event this year — a special Community WORSHIP Service at the Historic Palace Theater.

The Sunday Worship and service of open Holy Communion was sponsored by the First Presbyterian, Methodist, and Episcopal congregations of Luverne, MN.

Pastors Terry Morse, Donn Rakow, Emily Lodine, and dozens of community volunteers mde the service the success it was.

Thanks as well to our own Deb Vander Kooi, chair of First Presbyterian Church worship committee, for her initiative in planning for this event.
