Old plow, new era in Michigan

Plowing ground
 

If you want to make a routine groundbreaking event into something that lands in the denomination's magazine, take a lesson from Trinity Lutheran Church, New Era, Mich. In July, 175 worshipers used member Gordon Anderson's 110-year-old plow to break ground for a $1.2 million sanctuary and office/multipurpose space, replacing a 129-year-old sanctuary. Worshipers — led by Beth Eisenlohr (council president), Ty Hansen (building committee chair) and Steve Samuelson (interim pastor), pulled the plow using a long rope.
