Chapter  38 - Eau Claire Churches

Grace Lutheran Church

(-as transcribed from page 521)

This church was organized January, 1910, with 137 charter members and a Sunday School of eleven teachers and 100 pupils. The enrollment is now — 1914 — thirty-nine teachers and 360 pupils and the congregation numbers 453. There is a prosperous Ladies' Aid Society of seventy-five members, a Men's Club, Young People's Society, a Philathea Bible class of sixty-six members and a Baraca Bible class of thirty-five. The property at Grand and Second avenues and the parish house thereon are paid for, and when the proposed church building is erected on this location the church will be fully equipped. The Rev. H. M. Thompson, the first pastor, received his degree from St. Olaf College, Northfield, Minnesota, taught four years in Pleasant View College, Ottawa, Illinois, and after three years of theological study was ordained and installed as pastor of this church on June 19, 1910. His work in the upbuilding of the church activities has been most efficient and greatly appreciated by his people. It is with their sincere regret that he now accepts a position as president of Pleasant View Lutheran College at Ottawa, Illinois, and they are compelled to choose another pastor.
