On Saturday, members of Sewickley Presbyterian Church performed a play 100 years in the making ... 75 years later.

In celebration of the church's 175th anniversary, parishioners staged “One Hundred Years Ago” — a play written for the church's 100th anniversary event held in 1938.

Written by Isabel Booth, the play focuses on the founding of the church on Feb. 17, 1838.

The event culminated the church's yearlong celebration.
