Church (continued from page one) There were also changes in the num- ber of memberships, which increased from the original 13 members in 1885 to the current membership of 122 Baptized Members and 102 (ommunicant Members. Eighteen pastors have served the congregation throughout the years. Pastor Thaine Kister is the current pastor, having been with the congre- gation since July 22, 2007. On that day, he was ordained as a LCMS Pastor, and installed as Pastor at Trinity. Pastor Robert Friedrich served the longest, at 27 years, having been there from 1975 until 2002 when he retired. Pastor Harold Senkbeil is the only son of the con- gregation, to be born and raised in the area, baptized, confirmed, married and ordained into the ministry, all at Trinity, Town Walter. Pastor Pfotenhauer, who was the first pastor, went on to become President of the Minnesota District, and then President of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. One of the biggest changes that occurred in the church was giving the women the opportunity to become voting members. In 1976, Myrtle Maatz became the first woman to become a voting member and in 1983, Clara Lotthammer became the first woman elected to the council. That was certainly a change from the early years, when women had no voice in the church, and they and the children sat on one side of the church for ser- vices, and the men sat on the other.
