Welcome to First English Lutheran Church in Spring Valley, Minnesota.  We are a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and are located on the edge of beautiful Bluff Country in southeast Minnesota.

First English Lutheran Church celebrated its 75th Anniversary on Sunday May 19, 2013 with a special morning worship service, catered dinner and a special program.

507-346-2793 for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."  Joshua 24:15

As you enter the church, notice the cross beside the east door. This picture was taken early one morning and the sun produced the cross from the shades of the stone.   Welcome.

Almighty and everlasting God, You sent Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, to take upon Himself our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross.  Mercifully grant that we may follow the example of His great humility and patience and be made partakers of His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.
