Wally Strand, who led the church through the building project said "It was a step of faith for our historic country church to build a new sanc- tuary and fellowship hall. We are thankful for the Lord's leading and for our member families and our many frequent visitors whose gen- erous giving has provided for the early retirement of our mortgage." The church is among a few country churches remaining in the area, dating back to 1906 when the original church - now attached to the new building - was built. The farm family founders of the church met in homes and in the Lake Francis School beginning in 1899, when the land was donated for the church cemetery, which is next to the present church. David Peterson, a life-long mem- ber of the church, whose grand-par- ents Andrew and Christine Anderson donated the original land, said "We are thankful that God has blessed our Lake Union church for these many years. And Lake Union Evangelical Covenant church members burned the mortgage for their sanctuary and fellowship building just four years after beginning the project. Wally Strand, who led the church through the process, is seen on the far right. Submitted photo. the retirement of our mortgage pre- pares us to serve our Lord Jesus in ministry for years to come." Located on the southwest side of Lake Union, near where Meeker County Road 19 becomes Wright County Road 2, Lake Union Evangelical Covenant church hosts a new electronic sign welcoming all to the new sanctu- ary for worship - in Word and in song - where Madeigh Rumsey has been a pianist for 53 years. After the mortgage was burned, Marleigh Rumsey played and all sang the "Hallelujah chorus." And everyone said... "Amen!"
