Founded in 1860 by Swedish immigrants, who came here to mine the area's rich iron ore deposits.<br />
<br />
Swedes and miners are still part of the mix 138 years later, but they are joined by many others - some lifelong Lutherans - and some from other faith backgrounds.<br />
<br />
Worship - of course - is central to what we do, but there is lots more going on.<br />
