Linden Hills church celebrated centennial

Linden Hills United Church of Christ, 4200 Upton Ave. S, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this fall, with a kickoff even Sunday, Sept. 29, 2 p.m.

The 56 original members chartered the church in October 1902. The present building was erected the same year, and a sanctuary was added four years later.

At the kickoff event, the Twin City Trolley will give free rides around the neighborhood and there will be a Centennial concert at 4 p.m., featuring songs from throughout the century.

On Sunday, Oct. 6, a 10 a.m. worship service will honor the past 100 years and include speeches, music and prayers for the future. Historical displays will fill the church hall. Call the church office at 927-4603 for questions.
