The Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church, or "Mindekirken", is an ELCA church with services at 9:00 am (in English) and 11:00 am (in Norwegian, translations provided). On the last Sunday of the month, we have one service only, a bilingual family liturgy worship at 11:00 am.  The 11 am services are livestreamed.

Mindekirken is located on the block south of E. Franklin Ave, between Elliot Ave. and 10th Ave. S.

Mindekirken serves its members and the Norwegian-American community with a variety of faith-based and cultural programs. We invite you to explore our website for all that is happening at Mindekirken! Check the calendar page or call the church office for updates, or best method is to subscribe to the weekly email update on the Communicator page sign-up form.

The Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church, Mindekirken, is embarking on a fundraising campaign called Launching the Next Century to raise at least $100,000 to fund a program and volunteer coordinator position. Because of the rich and robust programming offered by Mindekirken, more than 1,000 volunteers are needed during the calendar year to execute programs. When one thinks about it, that is overwhelming!
