The congregation, comprised of several farm families, was organized as a mission church by Trinity Lutheran Church in St. Joseph in 1919, according to a news release.
A school was started in 1920, and the Rev. Albert Krug was called to be the church’s first pastor that same year.
The first church building was dedicated on May 21, 1921. The current church was dedicated in 1973.
Many special services are planned for this year, and a book filled with past and present families is being compiled.
