History OF LLCM
In August 2012, a few central Minnesota believers met to discuss the idea of gathering for services in the Monticello, MN area in addition to the local established LLC congregations at that time. An additional meeting was held on September 14th, 2012, where forty-three people attended and expressed interest in gathering as a new congregation. The presence of the Holy Spirit was felt at a follow-up meeting on October 26th, 2012, and desire to start a new congregation in Monticello was discussed. By the end of the October meeting, sixty-two people had joined together in forming this new congregation.
On November 14, 2012 a business meeting was held at Eastview Elementary School in Monticello. Laestadian Lutheran Church of Monticello was selected as the name of the new congregation, with a start date of January 6, 2013 to begin holding weekly Sunday School, Sunday morning services, and Wednesday evening Bible Class.
