It has purchased five acres of land from New Hope Village in the northeast section of Carroll. Church members plan to eventually build a church on this site, the Rev. Darryl Torrin said. The congregation seeks to continue and maintain as much of the current ministry as possible at the rural location, three miles east, three miles north and one and one-half miles east of Carroll, Pastor Torrin said. While maintaining the present rural church, the congregation is making plans for the new church in Carroll. It will be built in cooperation with the church's Division for Service and Mission in America, he said. Membership of the country church has grown markedly within the past few years. "At this point, we are stretching the facilities," the pastor said. "As Carroll expanded in the early 1970s, we had an influx of new members." A steering committee has been formed to locate temporary facilities for the Carroll worship services. The committee will work toward the precise definition of the relationship between the two congregations, he said. The current church programs include Sunday Church School for all ages, weekday confirmation classes for Junior High students and Luther League for both Junior and Senior High youths, he said. The American Lutheran Church Women (ALCW) has three circles which meet monthly for Bible study and projects of service and mission. The current -church membership is 265 baptized persons, 195 confirmed members and about 100 family units. The church was established in 1892 by German immigrants.
