A church in rural Washington County is celebrating its 150th Anniversary this weekend. Bethel Presbyterian Church is located eight miles west of Ainsworth. Norma Sandberg, a long time member of the church, says while their congregation is small and they only had a few individuals to help organize the event, they felt their 150th anniversary was too big not to celebrate. The public is invited to a service on Sunday at 1:30pm, where past and present members of the church will share memories. For more information, listen to today’s In Touch with Southeast Iowa.
