Happy 75th Anniversary SED

Happy 75th Anniversary Southeastern District
The official birthdate is July 29, 1939. A historical moment from Dr. L.F. Frerking "The Southeastern District was formed in 1939 through a happily arranged "marriage" of congregations formerly affiliated with two districts of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, namely, The English and Eastern Districts. Its roots and forebears, however, went back more than a century to the old Tennessee Synod in North Carolina and Virginia, and in Maryland to the old General Synod and the very beginning of Missouri Synod history." (Dr. Frerking was president of the SED in 1969-1963.)
