In 1894, Norwegian immigrants and Norwegian-Americans, young and old, working-class and professionals both, came together to worship for the first time in a rented room on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis. Industrialization and immigration brought new people to the city as a new century beckoned. Amidst this societal change, the first members of Bethlehem Lutheran found hope and renewal in God’s grace. In the name of Christ, they went on to help form Fairview Hospital and the Ebenezer Society. Their language changed from Norwegian to English. Their gathering place became Lyndale Avenue near Lake Harriet.
Now, God has brought Minnetonka Lutheran and Bethlehem Lutheran together to continue God’s work for decades to come as Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities. We stand on the scaffold built by the members of Bethlehem and Minnetonka. Two campuses, rooted in their communities, working as one to be sent out with the Holy Spirit to change lives throughout the Twin Cities and around the world.
