Flooded Minot church restored, re-dedicated

MINOT, N.D. — Officials say the restoration of an historic church is a symbol of Minot's resiliency after the devastating 2011 Souris River flood.

Immanuel Lutheran Church on the grounds of the Ward County Historical Society was re-dedicated during a Sunday ceremony. Lay Pastor Blake Krabseth says the rebirth of the church "signifies the future of Minot."

The church was built in 1904 in a township northeast of Minot. It was moved to the Historical Society grounds in 1967. It was among the many buildings flooded by the Souris River last year.

The Minot Daily News reports that people will be able to have weddings in the church again, and services will be held during the North Dakota State Fair next summer.
