First settlers in this area on Decker Creek were Swedish immigrants, who attended church in Austin from 1867 to 1870s.

Beginning in 1871, the Rev. C.C. Charnquist of Austin preached in homes. With advent of more settlers, a church was erected and dedicated at Pentecost, 1879.

In 1882, a public school was opened. In 1884, the church was enlarged and parsonage built.

In the pastorate (1901-02) of the Rev. C.O. Freeman, the present sanctuary was erected. The large modern wing was added in 1967.
