Lobethal Museum 50th Anniversary

Lobethal Museum 50th AnniversaryThe Lobethal Museum 50th Anniversary service will be held on Sunday, May 23rd at 2pm.

This church museum also houses the little “seminary” (pictured right), erected in 1845, which is of great significance. The first three Australian-trained Lutheran pastors graduated in 1855.

The 50th Anniversary Service of the opening of the museum will be held in the historic 165 year old church (unless the attendance leads us into the new church, in which case groups will be taken through the old church).

The Thanksgiving Service will be led by Pastor David Paech, who will also preach. In 1860 his great-grandparents were married in this church, which is still in its original condition. Included will be a remarkable story of the building of the church; the remarkable story of thorough theological training; and an offering for museum maintenance.

There will be inspection of the Museum and Seminary (and possibly the church) in large groups followed by a pooled afternoon tea in the hall under the new church. Please bring a plate and leave it in the hall before the service. Coffee and tea etc will be provided.

This event also coincides with the first weekend of SA History Week.
