Excerpt from Lowden (Cedar County, IA) Centennial Book 1857-1957:

LOWDEN CHURCHES
ZION EVANGELICAL AND REFORMED
The Rev. Theo. Thomas became minister in 1926. In 1932 the Rev. Fred J. Abele succeeded him. A new constitution was adopted, mid-week Lenten services were introduced, and many repairs were made on all the church property. The Rev. Norman S. Roberts, present pastor, was called following the resignation of Rev. Abele in 1946.
