Perley Lutheran Parish consists of two congregations, Kirkebo Lutheran in the small town of Perley, MN, and Nora Lutheran Church, out in the country, 5 1/2 miles east of Gardner, ND.
These two congregations have been joined for most of more than 100 years, and although they function independently, they cooperate in so many ways, including the sharing of a pastor.
Interested in Joining?
To become a member of either Kirkebo or Nora, one needs to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord of his/her life, and:
- Believe that the congregation is a Christian fellowship;
- Believe that he/she/they can grow in his/her relationship to Christ as a member of the congregation; and
- Believe that he/she/they can faithfully serve Christ as a member of the congregation.
It is not necessary to accept all particular Lutheran doctrines, or to agree with all policies of the ELCA. Also, it is certainly not necessary to renounce what one believes which is more typical of a different expression of the same Christian Faith. In Christ we embrace rather than challenge differing expressions of the Christian Church.
Need More Information?
We are served by a retired pastor who lives in West Fargo, and who provides about 3/4 time for us. He would be willing to meet with you, speak to you on the phone, or exchange emails with you. See our Contact Us page.
