Brief From History

Pioneer Lake Lutheran Church began over 100 years ago on October 26th, 1903 with 9 charter members and still stands today as a testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit. Worship services in the early years were spoken in Swedish and conducted in homes and local school buildings.  The first church service at our current location was held on May 20th, 1919 in a small white framed church.  Just a few short years later in 1923 English was introduced into the services.

Our church building that resides today was built in 1999 and is the epicenter for continuing God’s work.  Through the years our church has been transformed and renewed through the generous donations and commitments of our members.  We look forward to the fruitful years the lie ahead, as our congregation continues to grow and serve in the teaching of Jesus Christ.
