Holy Cross Lutheran Church

All the pastors of Holy Cross Lutheran Church were able to attend the 25th anniversary celebration Nov. 15. Pictured are, from left, Rev. Glen Wurdeman; Rev. Kevin Vogts; three of the original charter members, Dr. Douglas Martin and Doug and Sue Jansen; and Rev. Dr. Michael Kumm and Rev. Jeremy Richert.

Young compared to some, old compared to others, Holy Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dakota Dunes marks the 25th year since it was first organized as a congregation of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. To celebrate this anniversary, all of the former pastors who served Holy Cross were invited to join the congregation Sunday, Nov. 15. The congregation was blessed with the rare opportunity to have all three of their former pastors (Rev. Glen Wurdeman, Rev. Kevin Vogts and Rev. Dr. Michael Kumm) as well as their current pastor (Rev. Jeremy Richert), under one roof leading the Divine Service and sharing in thanksgiving to God for all his blessings over the past 25 years.
