A small group of dedicated Norwegian Lutherans, worked to establish a congregation and house of worship, the Blue Earth City Scandinavian Evangelical Lutheran Church, in 1891. The group consisted of 10 families: John Borge, Mikkel Chilson, Guttorm Engum, Absolon Erdahl, Nils Erdahl, Easton Flo, Iver Flo, Jens Mikkelson, Mikkel S. Mikkelson and Ole S. Mikkelson.
A constitution was adopted in 1891. Worship services were held and records were kept in Norwegian for thirty years. The Reverend E.K. Sandvig was called to shepherd the newly formed church.
