The German Lutheran congregation of McDonald PA
From the McDonald Record, July 30, 1909, page unknown:
German Church Anniversary
The German Lutheran congregation of McDonald celebrated the twenty-fifth
anniversary of the dedication of their church building yesterday. Appropriate
exercises were held in the sanctuary in the forenoon, followed by the picnic
of the Sunday School in the afternoon. The history of the congregation dates
back to 1871, when the Rev. SCHWEIGER of Kittanning held the first service in
MCCARRELL’s schoolhouse. Afterward services were held once a month in the
Bulger schoolhouse. The Rev. S. MUNSCH of Pittsburg, deceased, succeeded the
Rev. SCHWEIGER, and during his pastorate the present church building was
erected and dedicated in July of 1884. The membership numbered 45. The Rev.
MUNSCH was followed by the Rev. R. BOETHELT, who had served only a short time
when he accepted a call from the Lutheran Church at Mansfield, Ohio. In 1889
the congregation called the Rev. Carl MILDNER of Brushton, Pa., who served
seven years. His successor was the Rev. George DIETZ of Jeannette, Pa., now of
Connellsville, Pa., who resigned in April of 1901, after serving faithfully
for five years.
Rev. J. H. TARNEDDE of McKees Rocks has for the past eight years been the
pastor of the church, which now numbers 142 members. The church is flourishing
in every department, the Sunday School especially being in a fine growing
condition under the able superintendency of Miss Mary TRAUTMANN, assisted by
Mr. John GROSSHEIM and others.
The church council is composed of Messrs. George WINDSHEIMER, Henry RAAB,
Michael LINK, John LUTZ, Henry KRESS and Herman KASTE.
