The Purposeof First Evangelical Lutheran Congregation

To bring the word of God to people by being faithful witnesses to the Gospel and administering the sacraments.


The First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Rush City was organized April 26, 1876. The settlers in and near Rush City gathered for this purpose, and Rev. Nils John Brink, pastor of the Fish Lake Lutheran congregation, presided at the meeting. Thirty-five persons had gathered and proceeded to organize the congregation by adopting papers of incorporation, and petitioning the Augustana Synod for admittance, adopting its constitution as the Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Congregation of Rush City.
