The Congregation
The Congregation
The congregation is a group of loving Christians of all ages who love getting together to hear more about their Savior. They are loving and welcoming. They arrive early and stay late just so the adults have time to talk and catch-up with each other, while the kids enjoy playing together. It feels like being at home with one big family at Redeemer. We would love to welcome you also to God's house, your home.

The Church
Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church started as a mission congregation of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), reaching out the pure living Word of the living God to those living in central South Dakota.

The first service was held on December 25, 1967 in the "Hospitality Room" of the First National Bank. Seven people attended the first service.

In July 1970 the congregation was formally organized and chose the name of Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church.

In 1973 land was purchased and ground was broken for the building of a permanent church on the corner of Mellette and Fourth Street where it still stands today.
Our Beliefs

We are members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). This church body got its name because it was formed in Wisconsin in the 1850′s. Our membership in this Synod unites us with Christians across our country and the world. It allows us to pool our resources for mission work as well as for writing hymnals, Bible classes, and other materials.
