Covenant English Evangelical Lutheran Church
Covenant Evangelical Lutheran Church, a member of the United Norwegian Lutheran Church of America, was organized for English work as the result of action taken by the Young People's Society of Bethlehem Norwegian Lutheran Church on December 1, 1891. Covenant was supposedly the first English mission among the Norwegian people is the U.S. After worshipping in rented quarters for several years, a brick chapel was built at the corner of N. Robey and Iowa Streets in 1900.
Covenant merged with St. Matthew Lutheran in 1914 to form First English Lutheran of Logan Square.
