“John the Baptist: A Great Man,” will be the subject of Dr. Hegge’s sermon Sunday morning at United Evangelical Lutheran Church, Ridgeland and Greenfield.

This will be the third in a series dealing with six Biblical characters. Included in the sermon there will also be a Memorial Service conducted in honor of Robert Elveton, a member of the congregation who passed away [October 10, 1942] while on active duty with the Marines in the Solomons. At this time the Service Flag, occupying a prominent place in the sanctuary, will have placed upon it the first gold star.
