(Craig) -- For 100 years, people around Craig have worshipped at the St. John's Lutheran church. This Sunday, the church will hold two special services commemorating the anniversary. Ralph Klemme is a long-time member of the church. He says originally, the church was an abandoned Methodist church located at what was known as Evansville, a small village no longer in existance, but a short distance from Craig. The congregation decided to move the building from Evansville to Craig. However, the church needed to be rebuilt following a tornado that damaged it in 1924. Klemme says aside from some upgrades and modernization to include handicapped accessible facilities, the country church remains much the same way as has throughout the course of its history.
