Administrative history

This congregation was a mission project of the American Lutheran Church. Pastor Delbert Zier organized the congregation and served from 1979-1980. The congregation worshiped in the Community Center of Fairlawn Towne, a Lutheran Retirement community located in Gresham. They put a modular building on a lot, and were able to move in October 23, 1987. At the height of the congregation their membership was 139. This did not last long, and after several failed attempts to increase membership the congregation voted to close April 11, 2004.
