Conrad (Mont.) Christian Reformed Church was established Oct. 29, 1909, just one year after the agriculturally-based town of Conrad itself was incorporated. The congregation’s first pastor was Rev. Menno Borduin.
This year, the congregation, with current pastor Rev. Maurice Vander Veen, will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the church with a special weekend of activities in November.
A Saturday-evening banquet will include special music, a slideshow, and sharing of memories with the congregation, the community, and former pastors. The church’s theme for the weekend, “Celebrating God’s Faithfulness Through All Generations,” based on Psalm 89:1, will also shape the Sunday morning worship service.
