Brush Creek Lutheran Church
Brush Creek Lutheran Church will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the congregation Sunday, June 29.
In 1864, a group of six Norwegian immigrant settlers met to start a new congregation. Before this, like many pioneers scattered through the hills and valleys of the area, they had been members of Coon Prairie Norwegian Lutheran Synod of America and were visited several times a year by the circuit pastor.
