An area church will mark 150 years with a music festival and ice cream social on Sunday, June 26.

The congregation of St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Chatsworth was formed in 1872. Other Lutheran congregations were started in 1877 and 1878 in Germanville and Charlotte townships but joined Chatsworth in the 1940s, according to the 125th anniversary booklet, A History of St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Chatsworth, Illinois. St. Paul joined the Servants United Parish in 2021 which consists of seven churches from surrounding communities.

The special event on June 26 takes place at 2 p.m. outside of the church at 105 South Sixth Street in Chatsworth. Organizers ask visitors to bring lawn chairs. In case of rain, the festival will be held inside the church. Music for the day will be provided by members of the congregation and other local musicians.

Sunday services are currently held at 9 a.m. both in person and live streamed on Facebook.
