History search is on for Zoar Moravian Church

Zoar Moravian Church will celebrate 150 years Aug. 11, 2013. The planning committee is hoping to gather family stories, history, and any meaningful information of relatives who settled in the area.
The church records are primarily about meetings and events (all in German) until the early 1900s. Much of this has been translated, but more details would be greatly appreciated for the celebration. Who were these pioneers, how did they live, what did they do?
Any information or stories would be greatly appreciated by June 22. For details, contact Gina Rowe at (952) 442-4275.
