Jessica Nafe is no stranger when it comes to excelling in the classroom and in extracurricular activities.

So it’s no surprise she is NRHEG’s nominee for the Minnesota State High School League’s ExCEL Award. Jessica is the daughter of Terry and Karen Nafe of Waseca.

ExCEL – Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership – is a unique recognition designed exclusively for Minnesota high school juniors who are active in school activities, who show leadership qualities, and who volunteer in their communities.

Nominees must be a junior in high school, make satisfactory progress toward graduation, participate in a MSHSL fine arts and/or athletic activity, hold leadership position(s) in their school, and work voluntarily in their community. This is the 19th year the MSHSL has sponsored the ExCEL Award.

The bells tolled at St. Peter Lutheran Church at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, January 25 as the Sunday School children, which numbered about 30, all dressed in red, entered the sanctuary singing, "We Can Pray," followed by, "How Great Thou Art,” which was very appropriate for the day.

The Rev. Scott Williams welcomed everyone to the 125th anniversary worship service, saying he was grateful for everyone's presence. He went to talk about what the church has been and what it has meant to the people of the congregation.

Pastor Phil Lewison, who served as pastor of the St. Peter’s congregation for 32 years, from 1976-2008, had been asked to share his memories during the program.

The Rev. Steven Delzer, Bishop of the Southeastern Minnesota Synod, ELCA, delivered the morning sermon. He began: "We gather this day for worship and the celebration of 125 years of faithful ministry. For 125 years this congregation has been a symbol of God's presence in this community. The article in the NRHEG Star Eagle about the celebration of your 125th anniversary began with these words: ‘When a new piece of land was settled in the early years the most important thing to be established was a church. The congregation that was formed were devoted in their religion and feelings ran deep for the need of God’s house where they could meet and praise the Lord.’"
