The Seward United Methodist Church has recently cleaned out some old files. They had many things on a hallway table with a "Free" sign a week ago when I picked up a Hymnal and Sunday, I found this 20 page, 5 1/4 by 8 1/2 inch "History of The United Methodist Church" pamphlet dated October 1992. The opening paragraph says, "This booklet, a remembrance for our 125th Anniversary, has been prepared by the Committee as your keepsake. The information in it has come from the 1974 booklet, written to store the names, events and and statistics for all generations of the future." It contains a wealth of information that I appreciate receiving. My folks joined the Church soon after their wedding in 1920. Mother was the Sup't. of the Cradle Roll when I was baptized, but we joined a Garland Church when we moved to the farm.
We joined the Church again after moving closer to Seward, however with getting married in Elaine's Church, we agreed to continue membership there but would get back to the Methodist Church eventually. That didn't happen until 1996. This is a picture of my Sunday School class before we moved to the farm. I am the 2nd from the left end on the top row. We have the names of all of these people and have had contact with some fairly recently. We even took Meals to the Teacher some years ago.
