Spirit Lake Presbyterian Church services are held at 10:30 a.m. on Sundays. The Rev. Dick Poppen speaks each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The annual meeting was held last Sunday.
The very first outdoor confirmation at Spirit Lake Presbyterian took place Nov. 1 when James Poppen was confirmed with Jerod Jordon, CRE, officiating. Sponsors were his godparents, Marty and Elizabeth Haufschild of Arlington, and James’s parents, Aaron and Sheila Poppen. Refreshments were offered to the congregation.
Last Wednesday, Terry Johnson of Wasilla, Alaska, Dave Johnson of Spicer, Minn., and Gordon Poppen of Sioux Falls were hunting pheasants in the area and stopped for an outdoor visit at Cork and Illdena Poppen’s home. The Johnson men were houseguests of Dorothy Haug of Willow Lake.
