Mindekirken Celebrates 92 Years
January 9, 1922 - 2014




Mindekirken was founded in 1922, in a world changed by W.W.I. The elusiveness of peace helped turn the country inward, resulting in a great emphasis on all to be 100% American. Foreign language churches were rapidly converting to English-only services. However, there were those who saw the need to preserve their heritage, especially in their place of worship.

In the fall and winter of 1921,Rev. C.J. Eastvold, President of the Southeast district of the newly formed Norwegian Lutheran Church in America, asked 6 men and 1 woman to help form a Lutheran congregation providing services in Norwegian for as long as anyone would hear and understand it. On January 9, 1922 the congregation was formed with 22 charter members.
