    BEAUTIFUL WINDOW

    by Rich62 Written May 2, 2005

    This is a stained glass window found over the main entrance to the Elba, Nebraska, United Methodist Church.

    When I was there the register of attendance posted on the wall indicated that this church had 58 members on the roll, of which 41 had attended church the previous Sunday.

    THE INSIDE STORY

    by Rich62 Written May 2, 2005

    This is one of the more unusual altars I have seen for a Methodist Church. In fact when I entered the church I thought maybe it was really a Catholic church. But in reality it had once been Lutheran.

    It was built in 1908 as the Danish Lutheran Church of Elba. But in 1949 the Lutherans gave the church to the Evangelical United Brethren, whose church has burned down! The E.U.B. Church was one of those who later merged into the United Methodist Church, and that is why it is a Methodist Church today.

    A NICE, CLEAN CITY PARK

    by Rich62 Updated May 2, 2005

    Welcome to Ray's Park. Ray is a retired farmer who donated this plot of land to the town for a park. His son made the nice sign in honor of his dad. Each year the town accepts bids from citizens who would like to take care of the park for that summer.

    Basically it has grass, some trees, and a picnic table with benches. Just a basic park but thats all you need.
