Jan. 6, 1930 - Impressive services open new Presbyterian church: Initial services in the new unit of the Grace Presbyterian Church were held yesterday, with the dedication proper at 2:30 in the afternoon. The occasion marked the happy culmination of years of endeavor on the part of the pastor, the Rev. Marvin M. Walters, and members of the congregation.

A list of contributions made to the new church building, which cost more than $50,000, includes more than 200 names. Practically all fixtures and equipment were given by members and friends of the church, and a great amount of labor was donated by the various contractors. Among the givers was Gov. Walter J. Kohler, who donated the huge sink in the kitchen. Attorney General Oscar E. Carlstrom of Illinois gave the rug for the pulpit stand. He is a personal friend of Mr. Walters.

Tuesday evening a banquet will be served in Grace Hall, in honor of the men who worked on the building.
