WELCOME! We extend a cordial welcome to each of you and invite you to attend any or all centennial activities. We trust that you will find the activities interesting, the fellowship renewing, and the entire experience a blessing. The festival should be a happy occasion–a celebration. We hope that you will join heartily–with heart, strength and mind–in praise of God for the blessings of the past century, and in expressing appreciation for the political and religious liberties and economic opportunities present, and the peace, order and tranquility of this quiet community. We owe a debt of gratitude to the pioneers for the rich heritage given us. We encourage you to become involved in the activities, to enjoy the good food, including the tasty dishes like “Bona Beroggi,” “Mak Kuchen,” to worship with us on Sunday morning at 10 a.m., and share in the dedication service at 2: 30 p.m. on Sept. 1. Have a good day–the kind that you will treasure as a milestone in your life. Swiss Mennonite Cultural and Historical Assoc. Harley J. Stucky, President

CONVERSATION “Our Dedication in the Future” James Gingerich, Walter Neufeld
O God, our gracious father, as we look at the background and varied experiences of which we are made, we can see that there is reason for repentance, for reflection, for dreaming and rejoicing. We praise You for our success and victories and pray for our weaknesses and failures. We ask your forgiveness for the golden calves of pride, materialism, and self-sufficiency, that we have raised up for our worship–and for all those things which have deterred the fulfillment of Your will and purpose in us. As You forgive us, send us also a new joy, and a new appreciation of our heritage of faith. Truly we have much to celebrate as sons and daughters of forefathers, and of You–for through Christ we have become the recipients of Your treasurehouse of spiritual gifts. We pray that this whole centennial experience will provide for us a new prophetic insight and stance, so that the gifts You have showered upon us will become real in the experience of all mankind. As every person is born a cocoon, with the potential of becoming a beautiful butterfly, so help us as a people to break out of ourselves, unfold our wings, and come alive! We have the most beautiful gift in the world; the Love of Christ–help us to live and to share it! Amen.

Dedication Litany

We are assembled to praise God, express appreciation, acknowledge the importance of others in our lives and commemorate the coming of our forefathers one hundred years ago. God has been good to our people. There have been times of hardship and tribulation, but HE has been faithful and long suffering even when we, or our forefathers were wayward. This monument with the cross lifted above the world, resting on a solid foundation, is intended to beckon mankind to acknowledge that Thou art God, and that Thy authority extends above and beyond our own idols of materialism, nationalism, egoism, or other misleading loyalties. Today and always, we would join Peter saying: “We must obey God, rather than men.” Acts 5:29.

We dedicate this monument to THEE, Lord and to Thy honor and glory. Individually, and collectively, we commit ourselves–heart, soul, strength and mind (Luke 10:27)to THEE–Almighty–Everlasting–Creator–Judge and Loving Father–as revealed in Jesus Christ, our Lord.

In dedicating this Centennial Memorial, we are mindful of the important role others have had in the lives of our forefathers, their destiny and our heritage. The spiritual kinship of numerous Mennonite groups and their leaders, served as a source of inspiration and fellowship; among these are the brethren in South Dakota; Andreas Schrag–Swiss Volhynian representative among the twelve chosen to investigate the land, The Mennonite Board of Guardians, Bernhard Warkentin, David Goerz, Christian Krehbiel, and many others. We owe a debt of gratitude to the Santa Fe Railroad for the Immigrant House and the land given for religious and educational use in 1874 on which this monument stands. We gratefully acknowledge the political and religious liberties and economic opportunities found here in America, along with the warm hospitality and friendship of the American people in the past century.

in dedicating this Memorial we express appreciation to all who gave materially or spiritually to our forefathers or to us. We acknowledge that the friendship, services and goods provided, have contributed to our well-being. We are grateful for the opportunity to live in a land which seeks to provide liberty and justice for all. We are particularly indebted to those public servants–local, state and national–who in times of tension acknowledge the importance of conscience and the priorities of the Christian faith.

In dedicating this monument, we recognize the foresight of those who brought field, flower, fruit and garden seeds and the hard labor involved in planting and harvesting. These seeds of hope, life and nourishment have helped to make Kansas the bread-basket of the nation.

In dedicating this Centennial Center, we remember the legacy of Christian faith and character in our heritage, such as integrity, frugality, compassion and others. Help us, Oh Lord, to be ever mindful of those in need and enable us to share the seeds of loving concern–intellectually, spiritually and materially–as needed.

These stones, plaques and ribbons of stainless steel have been assembled as an expression of gratitude to THEE, Oh Lord. They symbolize a faith and an attempt by “one generation . . . /to/ commend THY works to another. . . . They recite the story of Thy abounding goodness and sing of THY righteousness with joy.” (Psalm 145:4, 7). The beauty and majesty of architecture, landscaping and script are brought together here to provoke thoughtful reflection, understanding, appreciation, and adoration and to witness to the present and future generations. The Memorial Center itself provides an essential link with the past, especially with the Immigrant House and settlement of 1874, and the present as it speaks to us and relates to the Turkey Red Wheat Trail and the future as visitors and descendants are challenged by the vision of Christian faith set forth in this tradition.

It is our hope and prayer, that this Centennial Memorial will encourage people to acknowledge THY sovereignty and experience, THY abiding presence so that our Lord’s prayer may increasingly be fulfilled–“THY kingdom come; Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” To these ends and for these purposes, we dedicate this Centennial Memorial.
