Founded in 1879, the Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church is one of Lake Wobegon's two churches; the other is the Catholic Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility. The church's long-time pastor was Pastor Ingqvist; after being encouraged to leave after a visiting Bishop felt he had stayed in place too long, he was replaced first by interim Pastor Barbara Hamm. After a few months Pastor Liz became the full-time Pastor for the church.
