He attended college at Concordia Jr. College, St. Paul, MN.; and seminary at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Mo. During his internship, Friedrich served vicarages at Peace Lutheran Church, Philomath, Oregon and Emmaus Lutheran Church, Ridgewood, Brooklyn, New York. "It was quite a change for me growing up in a rural area in Iowa to go to the larger cities with the faster pace of life. The church in Oregon was in a town of 2,000, Stamford had 100,000 people and Brooklyn had three million people at that time," Pastor Friedrich said. Friedrich noted he learned about having a ministry in two languages --German and English--while in New York. He was ordained and installed at Zion Lutheran Church, Stamford, Conn. on June 24, 1962. He served there for four years and found his bride there. Pastor Friedrich served nine years at churches at Emmanuel, Logan and Zion, Magnolia, Iowa before coming to the Bellingham area. "It was quite" a change for us to come from Iowa where we had gro- cery and hardware stores that we could walk to living in the country parsonage," he noted. The two churches he served in Iowahad membership spread over a large area making for some challeng- ing times to meet the needs of his parishioners. A new church building was built while he served the church in Logan, Iowa. "We went through the chal- lenges of building committees and interruptions during the building." Pastor Friedrich has been active in the church body as a circuit coun- selor-for 14 and one-half years -- helping congregations with vacant pulpits to find a pastor, on the Lutheran Laymen's League (LLL) for ten years; and was the Lutheran Women Mission League (LWML) pastoral advisor for the circuit for five years. He has been a member and chairman of the district social min- istries committee which held their meetings in Brainerd. On the local level, the pastor served as secretary of Bellingham Lions, and a Zone chairman for the Lions organization. Pastor Friedrich also served as a member of the Lac qui Parle Social Abuse Task Force, finished his term Kirchbcrg's birthdays a.d cake and On file Hilltop Board of Directors'in ice cream to family in the evening.

About his many years at the Bellingham parish Friedrich said, "A dual parish always has some chal- lenges with it. There have been loving people wherever we served." Their children were young when they came to Bellingham. "We found it a very good area to raise our family as it's nice to be out in the country-- if they were in town it would have been easy for them to wander off."

During his time in Bellingham, both congregations had a number of projects to maintain and improve the church buildings. The parsonage and cemetery were maintained well over the years. When he arrived in 1975 one parish had 230 and the other 220 members--in 2002 they each have memberships of 130. "This is due to deaths and people moving away because of jobs," he commented. When asked what he sees as the future of the rural churches in the area, Friedrich replied, "We may have to go back to the circuit riding pastor. One minister in our circuit is current- ly serving three congregations." Friedrich acknowledged there is a great need for pastors in rural areas of the state. "There are currently 800 churches without pastors in our synod." "Irene and I enjoyed our time serv- ing our churches in the Bellingham area where some of the members are the third or fourth generation of their family to attend church there," Friedrich said. The Friedrichs will be relocating to Willmar in July and his plans are to serve as interim pastor in the area.

The clinic will take place at the city parking lot at the intersection of 3rd ST and Monroe AVE (kitty- corner from the Ortonville armory.) What's the safest seat to buy? Has your seat ever been recalled? When is it safe for your child to "come out" of the seat? Is it the right type of safety seat for the size of your child? What is that little metal clip and when do you need to use it? Does your child's safety seat move around after you have buckled it? Child safety seats can be confusing, and the questions seemingly endless, but help is available. Come to the free drive-thru child safety seat check-up and spend " 20-25 minutes having your child's safety seat examined for safety. These questions will be answered and any others you may have about transporting your child as safely as possible. Replacement car seats will be available.
