• History of Minnehaha Communion Lutheran Church

Romans 11:17-18

But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the rich root of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember that it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you.

There has been much “rooting” and “grafting” to “grow” Minnehaha Communion Lutheran Church. MCLC was formally chartered on June 6, 1994, upon the merger of Minnehaha Lutheran Church and Holy Communion Lutheran Church. A third church root was grafted in 2005 when Our Redeemer Lutheran Church became paired with Minnehaha Communion. Those that have found themselves without a church home for various reasons have made their home here as well. While each member has a different history of what brought them here and now, we are reminded that we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses that have paved the way before us. With gratitude for the dedicated, resilient, faithful people that have brought us to where we are today, may we remember this resiliency and faithfulness as we open our hearts and minds to the working of the Holy Spirit and move into a future that is faithful, loving, and bold. Thanks be to God!
