The people of Memorial Lutheran Church have been gathering by the river and proclaiming the love of Jesus Christ to the St. Croix Valley since 1882. What started as a group of Swedish immigrants has grown into a diverse community of caring individuals.
While there have been many changes over the last century, one thing remains the same: our committment to do God’s work for God’s people.
Traditions that have stayed with us:
Advent Vespers- A celebration to mark the beginning of the Advent Season that includes a Vesper service and meal complete with a sampling of Scandinavian holiday fare.
Strawberry Festival – First held in 1882 to celebrate midsummer’s day, a Scandanavian tradition. Today, it continues as a community gathering for all. The festival is held every year in June.
