Lutheran Church of the Reformation to hold final worship
On March 10, 1957, the first worship service of the newly organizing congregation Lutheran Church of the Reformation (LCR) was held at St. Louis Park Theatre at 10 a.m. On October 27, 2013, the members of the church, with its building along Highway 100 in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, voted to dissolve as a congregation and give the property to the Minneapolis Area Synod.
For 56 years Lutheran Church of the Reformation has faithfully made a difference by bringing the story of Jesus to life, according to its current pastor, the Rev. Michelene Verlautz. This has been accomplished through a variety of ministries and outreach programs, she said.
On January 12, 2014, at 10 a.m., its members will gather for a final worship. Bishop Ann Svennungsen will preach; the Rev. Arnold Lack will preside. A brunch hosted by the Upper Room Worshipping Community will follow immediately. Planners request an RSVP to the LCR office at 952/929-0439.
