In Welch, Minnesota
On December 29, 1873, fifty-four persons (Swedes) moved by the Spirit of the Lord, established a congregation by dipping their pen in historic ink and signed their names to a document thus becoming charter members of the Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church of Welch, Goodhue County, Minnesota.
On that same day the charter members adopted nine different motions regarding the incorporation of the congregation. These motions were read and accepted as read at the first church services held on the 15th day of February, 1874.
