About Dennis

I began .Sunday school at Zion on November 2, 1952 at the age of 11. 
The following Sunday I was given my first Bible from Mrs. Wolf.  In 1952
I was both baptized and confirmed by the Rev. C.E. Wierth.  Following
graduation from Lakeland College in 1965 and Eden Theological Seminary
in 1968, I was ordained at Zion U.C.C. Peru, Illinois on June 9, 1968.
