Walter and Violet Korth were members of the York Center Church during the years 1949-51 while they were living on the Korth farm.

Violet writes, "We came to live on his Dad's farm on March 1, 1949 and became a part of the York Center Church and community, the friendly people who always had a kind word of encouragement."

"On October 31, 1949, our first baby, Darrell came to our family. He was baptized by Rev. Virgil Holmes on December 11, 1949.

In 1950-52 we accepted the job of youth leaders for the church young people. We had a splendid group of young folks. They were Patsy Hetzel, Luanne Schmidtke, Joan Lavey, Algene Schmidtke, Georgia Benedict, Audrey Henninger, Norita Schrnidtke, Patricia Davis, Elmer C. Martens, Jr., Don Benedict, Shirley Davis, Alvin Dahl, Donald Rowe, Janet Poziombke, and Dianne Martens. Rev. Lee Holmes was pastor at this time. We travelled to youth rallies at Colby, Unity and Marshfield.

A sleighing party was one winter event which all enjoyed. It was followed by a hot lunch at-the Ray Hetzel farm. When we moved, the Youth Fellowship presented us with a picture "Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane" with each signing it on the back. A picture of Sallman's "Boy Christ" was also presented to us by the congregation. This was a wonderful remembrance from them all.
