The Elkhart Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) dedicated a cross sculpted by Joe Muench on Sunday, May 25. The church commissioned Muench, associate professor of integrated studio arts at Iowa State University, to design and build the cross. David Kalsem, board chair for the church, contacted Muench. Pictured below are (from left) Joe Muench, David Kalsem and Reverend Anne Gregory, Elkhart Christian Church’s pastor. The new church bell tower also was dedicated. The new tower was built by church member Tom Ward. The original church bell was moved into the tower shortly after the cross was erected. The church is located at 252 NW Washington Ave. (Photos Submitted)
