First English Lutheran Church in Dorset is undergoing renovations that will save the historic building.

Gordon Kath, an elected trustee, has a long history with the church. His father, Rev. Gerald Kath, was the preacher in 1956. Gordon left the area and worked in the Twin Cities for a few years before moving back in 2003 with his wife.


"The church was built in 1936 with all local field stone," Gordon said. "It's been an active, thriving, church for many years."
