Organization Description


Our congregation is located in Waseca, MN. Waseca is known for our comfortable and friendly atmosphere.  It is just one hour south of all the big-city conveniences of the Twin Cities metropolitan area, located 13 miles west of Owatonna and 25 miles east of Mankato at the crossroads of State Highway 13 and US 14.  Waseca offers big city conveniences with the advantages of small town living.  Waseca is a vibrant community of 9,193 people comfortably nestled between two beautiful lakes. 

Our community is blessed with the abundant natural beauty of our lakes, a nature reserve, a vibrant main street, and stately historic homes.  In this setting, the arts and humanities are flourishing.  We are proud of our Historical Society, Waseca Arts Center, Public library and thirteen churches.  

 Recreational opportunities abound as well. We have fifteen beautiful city parks offering a variety of activities, including picnic areas, volleyball, tennis, and basketball courts, ball fields, playground equipment and biking and hiking trails.



Committed to giving back to the Lord, we tithe our general fund offerings monthly to local or worldwide missions as we are led by the Spirit.  We have an active Sunday School Program, teen youth program, Vacation Bible School and Fall Confirmation.  We have eight active Bible Study Groups, a 15 member Choir, dedicated musicians, and active group of Quilters and strong Worship, Evangelism, Fellowship and Property Committees.  

 Our regular worship schedule includes a liturgical 8:30 am service and a 10:45 contemporary service each Sunday, and full Advent, Lenten and Easter Week schedules.  Our services are taken out of the Lutheran Book of Worship and can be described as either Traditional or Contemporary Styles.  



We are served by an elected Church Council consisting of four Officers; President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and six Council Members.  All major decisions are being made by full congregational vote.  We were incorporated as an Independent Lutheran Church on December 17, 2009, under both Chapter 315 and Chapter 317A of Minnesota State Statues, and have obtained our Federal Employee Identification number from the Federal Government.
