The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer
The English Lutheran Church of the Redeemer was organized on January 9, 1916 as a member of Hauge's Synod, after operating from 1913 as the Irving Park Lutheran Mission of the Hauge Synod. Work was originally conducted in a portable chapel, with dedication of its own permanent facility at 4901 W. Bernice Ave. held on January 27, 1918. The original building later housed the fellowship hall and church offices when a new English Gothic sanctuary was constructed in the front of the lot in 1930. The congregation dissolved on June 25, 1995.
