The First Congregational Church of Wauwatosa, WI
Written and Compiled by Alice H. Hawks
The centennial history of The First Congregational Church of Wauwatosa is indelibly written in the character and achievements of our founding pioneers and their spiritual descendants. "By their fruits, ye shall know them."
A centennial narrative can only focus attention on highlights in the panorama of one hundred years of faith and devotion.
To the Centennial History Committee, Mr. Andrew D. Passell, Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Hawks, Mrs. Delmar D. Wensink, Mr. Lester A. Hafemeister, Mr. Walter H. Eggebrecht, and all who helped them, we are grateful.
Our greater obligation is to those who lived the history here recorded . . . We remember them with reverence . . . They have shown us the Way to the Kingdom of God . . . Times change but Christ remains "the same, yesterday, today, and forever." We are trustees of a faith for the ages. "Wherefore, seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, . . . let us run with patience the race which is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our Faith."
Henry James Lee
