Alma was organized as the Middle River Lutheran Church on October 12, 1880, at the home of Martin Gunderson. Pastor C. Saugstad presided over the organizational meeting. The name was changed to Alma Lutheran because people often looked for the church near the city of Middle River. A ladies aid as it was formerly called was organized in 1883. The first congregational officers were elected in 1884. The congregation was part of the Norwegian-Swedish Evangelical Church. Elias Aus was the first Pastor. The first church was built in 1893 for a cost of $673.65!
