Bethune, Colorado

click to enlarge

Hope Congregational Church is located 11 miles north of Bethune, Colorado and one mile east -- at the cross roads of County Gg & 41 (just one mile north of Immanuel Lutheran Church.)  The Cemetery is located just west of the church.  The church was organized in 1911 after a dispute within the Lutheran Church.  About half of the original settlement families joined this church. The first structure was a small wooden building.  A brick church was built in the mid 1950's and was destroyed by a tornado in 1993.  A new church was built on the site.

ADDITIONAL NOTE:   I don't think you have this name on the Hope Cemetery list: RUBEN FRANCIS LeROY MAEDCHE, born 28 July 1925, died 26 September 1930. He was the son of Rev. Chris and Lydia Maedche and died there when Chris was pastor of the Hope Congregational Church.  The stone was there in 1994 when we visited there after the tornado but was sort of hard to read then.  A cousin, Arlene Glenn at Otis, Colorado   Tue 1/28/2003
UPDATE:   Maedcke, Reuben Child   1925 - 1930  added 11/2010
