(ABC 6 News) -- This year marks the 125th anniversary of Moscow Lutheran Church. Today, the congregation put on an annual fundraiser.

"Every year they always say, ‘How many are we going to get?’ And they always get twice as many," said Pastor Matthew Williams.

The fundraiser brought out new and long-time members.

"125 years ago, our ancestors started the Moscow Lutheran Church by meeting in the school house,” said Kris Wilkie. “I was 4 years old when I started going to church here.”

This year, they decided to add a new display to the traditional event.

"My grandpa decided we should invite people to bring their tractors out to make the crowd a little bit bigger raise more money for the church," said Kevin Smeby.

All of the food was donated by members of the congregation, and all funds raised are from donations.

"They love their little church and it’s always been active. It's just a nice place to serve,” said Williams.
