  Mr. GRAVES of Missouri. Mr. Speaker, I proudly pause to recognize 
Salem Lutheran Church of Salisbury, Missouri, as they celebrate their 
sesquicentennial anniversary.
  Salem Lutheran has maintained a strong presence in their community 
since the church was founded in 1861 by German and Scandinavian 
immigrants. Organized as a typical country church, Salem Lutheran has 
stood the test of time from the Civil War and Reconstruction, through 
the 20th Century and now into modern times, continuing to minister and 
remain a pillar of the region.
  Mr. Speaker, I proudly ask you to join me in congratulating Salem 
Lutheran Church of Salisbury, Missouri for their 150 years of service 
to the Salisbury community.
