We earnestly seek to serve the many needs of individuals in our community and the world by sharing, supporting, inspiring, and encouraging each other through God’s love for us. Keeping Christ as our focus, we hope you’ll share our love and fellowship.

Our mission is to spread the Gospel in its truth and purity through Word and Sacrament in accordance with the Confession of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.

Plainview’s first German Lutheran settlers began meeting in their homes as early as 1870, using the Lutheran Hymnal and the printed sermons of C. F. W. Walther as worship guides. In 1873, the Rev. August Sippels, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Potsdam, MN, served the small group on a part-time basis. In the fall of 1875, the German Evangelical Lutheran Emmanuel Congregation of the Augsburg Confession was formed, pledging faithfulness to the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments and the Lutheran Confessions. Until 1876, this new congregation was led by Pastor Sippels, thereafter until 1886, by Pastor M. Stuelpnagel, and from 1886, by Pastor P.G. A. Schaaf, all from Potsdam.
