(Pitchengine Communities) * (Lander, Wyo.) - It was 50 years ago on Sunday, May 22,1966 that a dozen families gathered at the former Lander Oddfellows Hall for the first "official" worship service as Faith Lutheran Church. The dozen charter families had been meeting at homes in town prior to becoming a parish of the former American Lutheran Church, now known as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, or ELCA. The anniversary which falls on the week after Pentecost, was observed with a carry-in brunch on Sunday and much reminiscing about the church's origins. The official celebration, or Jubilee of the church, is planned on June 23 when former pastors and congregants have been invited to attend to return to Lander.
