United Church of Primghar International Night


August 29, 2019

Visitors to United Church of Primghar on Sunday made their way through the food line to taste traditional dishes from around the world.

A prayer service on Sunday afternoon, August 25 brought together individuals from across northwest Iowa. Guests were from the faith community, law enforcement and the general public. The prayer service was devoted to a new school year with the prayers for the safety of children, staff and law enforcement. Current events have brought the somber thoughts of school violence to the conscious of Americans everywhere.

Artifacts were on display in the youth activities room for guests to see, touch, and ask about meaning, history, manufacture and more.

Following the prayer service, games were played, displays of artifacts from throughout the world, maps and information about the ancestry were placed throughout the church.

Ethnic foods of church members and guests were brought and shared by the crowd of approximately 60 people. There were main dishes with beef, fish, pork, and chicken; salads or relishes; soups; rice; potato salads and deserts. Dishes brought are traditional from the countries of Africa, Germany, Holland, India, Lebanon, Norway and the United States.
