Indiana church celebrates 100th anniversary

Owen Township, Indiana

(The Tribune, 30 October) Small communities often thrive with the presence of a school, which serves as a backbone and brings people together.

It has been years since Kurtz had its own school, so the small Jackson County community in Owen Township has relied on another structure that can help a town thrive: a church. 

As other churches in the area have shut their doors, Kurtz Church of the Nazarene has stood the test of time.

Earlier this month, the church celebrated its 100th anniversary.

It serves as the backbone and heart of the community.

Lincoln City, Oregon

(The News Guard, 24 November) - In most years, residents of North Lincoln County would have a plethora of options to choose from when it comes to finding a freshly cooked Thanksgiving meal. However, COVID-19 has made options sparse.

Luckily, the community of Lincoln City and beyond have come together to make sure everyone enjoys a Thanksgiving feast. In the wake of the Echo Mountain Complex fire, the Lincoln City Church of the Nazarene has made it their mission to help those in need.

Apple Pie

Missouri church holds pie sale to benefit Uganda orphanage

Eldon, Missouri

(Lake Expo, 9 November) - Every fall, Eldon Nazarene Church members make masses of apple pies. This year's proceeds from sales of the pies, bought by members of the community, will help feed, clothe, and provide schooling for more than 40 orphans in Uganda at the Hope Orphanage.

Eldon Nazarene Church also recently celebrated 100 years of ministry to the Lake area. The pie fundraiser began when Pastor Jerry Frye wished to extend the church's charitable giving to programs further. A sister church in Cape Girardeau had refined a pie-making fundraiser—and recipe—so Frye obtained the recipe and church members jumped in.
