   IN RECOGNITION OF NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES DESIGNATION

                                 ______
                                 

                          HON. REID J. RIBBLE

                              of wisconsin

                    in the house of representatives

  Mr. RIBBLE. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Divine Temple 
Church of God in Christ, located in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This 
historically significant structure, designed by architect George 
Rockwell for the Christ Episcopal Church, was built in the famous 
Gothic Revival-style. The site has now been added to the National 
Register of Historic Places. The church and its members are planning to 
celebrate this milestone on Friday, June 28th, 2013.
   The cornerstone of this church was put in place in 1898, and the 
structure that stands today was completed one year later. Throughout 
its long history in downtown Green Bay, this church has served the 
spiritual needs of the community, and offered congregants a safe place 
to worship. I congratulate Pastor L.C. Green for his efforts to pursue 
this designation, and commend the congregation of Divine Temple Church 
of God in Christ for volunteering their time to preserving this 
wonderful structure.
   There is a quote from Romans 15:7 on the church website that reads: 
``Wherefore receive ye one another as Christ also received us to the 
glory of God.'' May this church continue to receive those seeking 
spiritual refreshment in the years to come. Again, congratulations to 
Divine Temple Church of God in Christ for receiving this special 
recognition.
