          HONORING FOUR MILE LUTHERAN CHURCH OF MABANK, TEXAS

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. JEB HENSARLING

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, April 26, 2013

  Mr. HENSARLING. Mr. Speaker, today I recognize the 165th Anniversary 
of the Four Mile Lutheran Church of Mabank, Texas.
   On May 5, 2013, Four Mile Lutheran Church will celebrate 165 years 
of Lutheranism. Four Mile Lutheran Church is the oldest Norwegian 
church in Texas, having held continual services from 1848-2013. For 165 
years, evangelism, missionary service, youth development, Sunday 
school, Bible study, fellowship, and worship have been celebrated by 
the congregation.
   As Thomas Jefferson said, ``It is in our lives and not our words 
that our religion must be read.'' It is an honor to represent the 
parishioners of Four Mile Lutheran Church whose lives exude service and 
faith.
