  The history of the Augustana congregation dates back to 1875. On September 17th of that that year, the Augustana congregation was organized by Reverend A. A. Scheie with a membership of 40. More than a year later, on October 24th, 1876, the first annual meeting was held and the first officers were elected.

  The first meetings were held in small pioneer homes. Later services were conducted by Reverend Scheie in a log school house located three miles east of the present Augustana Church. Services were held there and one other school house west of the current church until 1885 when the Augustana Church was completed.

  Only during the first three years of its existence has the Augustana congregation been alone under one Pastor, it has always been a part of a parish consisting of two or three or four neighboring churches. In 2014, Augustana Lutheran joined with Halstad Lutheran and Immanuel Lutheran to form United Valley Parish. 2015 marks the 140th year of the congregation's origin.

  Halstad Lutheran Church was establish June 23rd, 1892, under the name Halstad Norsk Evangelisk Lutherske Kirke.

  The first service was held in the village school.  When the space became too small, services were moved to the village hall until a church could be completed.

  In 1895, the first church was constructed and served its purpose until a fire destroyed the church. 

  The church was rebuilt in 1959.  The first service in the current church was held Christmas Day 1959.
