Name of creator
In 1926 the Cranbrook area was canvassed by Pastor Janzow of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod from Creston. Actual work began in the Cranbrook area around 1932 when services were conducted every two months and by 1943 they increased to every month. In 1953 Cranbrook and Kimberley joined as a parish. Their first resident pastor was installed in 1961 when they officially organized, adopted a constitution and bought property for a church. The church was completed in 1963 along with the aquisition of a parsonage. In 1988 the congregation joined the newly formed Lutheran Church-Canada.
