McCulloch Commemorates 100th Anniversary of the
Community Presbyterian Church of Jordan
Jordan, MT- Secretary of State Linda McCulloch Saturday evening honored the Community Presbyterian Church of Jordan with the Secretary of State’s Centennial Award in celebration of the church’s century of existence. The church first registered with the Secretary of State’s office on February 4, 1915.
“This award plays tribute to the Community Presbyterian church, and its importance to the Jordan community,” Secretary McCulloch said.
Secretary McCulloch thanked the members of the congregation and presented Mildred West with the certificate, a daughter of one of the church’s founding members.
“1915 was a time of great change, and the Community Presbyterian Church provided guidance and a sense of community to family and neighbors,” McCulloch said during the ceremony. “Today this sanctuary for worship continues to give back to the town of Jordan and adds value to people’s lives.”
McCulloch launched the Centennial Project in 2010 to commemorate the significant anniversary of businesses and organizations that first registered in Montana one hundred years ago, or more. A list of 2015 Centennial Award recipients can be found on the Secretary of State’s website at sos.mt.gov/Centennial.
