General note

After a survey in 1952, it became apparent that a Lutheran nucleus was interested in the formation of a congregation affiliated with the United Lutheran Church. The first service was held in the Nazarene church in July. The formal organizational service was held on January 18, 1953, with 55 persons signing the charter. During the next four years the congregation grew to 303 baptized members and purchased the Nazarene church at First and Davis. In 1959 the present site was purchased, and on October 6, 1963 the new site was purchased, and on October 6, 1963 the new church was dedicated. The parsonage was completed in 1964. In 1983 a social hall addition was dedicated, much of the work having been done by volunteers. A five rank pipe organ was completed in 1985.
