Description: This presentation will look at the history of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, WI. Founded in 1849, Grace holds an important place in our synod’s history. Johannes Muelhaeuser, served as pastor at Grace, was the instigator for the initial organizational meeting of the Wisconsin Synod on Dec 8, 1849, at Grace’s rented facility, was elected as president, and was chosen to write the constitution which was approved at the May 1850 meeting at Salem, Milwaukee. Over the course of its 174-year history, the congregation and pastors of Grace have played a significant role in spreading the message of Christ and his salvation both in Milwaukee and in the Wisconsin Synod. Join us to explore the rich history of Grace Lutheran Church in Milwaukee!
