HISTORY OF THE CHURCH

 

HISTORY OF THE CHURCH

 

Highland Prairie Lutheran Church has been in existence since 1854. It is one of the oldest Norwegian Lutheran Churches in the state of Minnesota.

The first church was built around 1865, and the parsonage was built in 1916. We lost our church building by fire on Easter Sunday, 1973; and a new church was built with dedication in 1974. There has been a new Sunday School addition added on since that time. A wayside chapel now sits where the old church one stood. Our church is unique in that it has a park and amphitheatre (lovingly called the "Bowl") as part of its facilities. They are used extensively by the congregation and visitors. The congregation holds several Sunday services in the "bowl" each summer.

In its history, the church has had several pastors, full time and interim, serving the congregation.

The people of the church remain active in Sunday worship services, WELCA, LYO and Sunday School.
