In the summer of 1944, a number of Detroit-area pastors felt that a mission congregation should be established to serve Huntington Woods and the south-east corner of Berkley. A pastor was called to accomplish that task, and by February of 1945 the first services of the Huntington Woods Lutheran Church were held in the Burton School. On April 15 of 1945 the congregation was officially organized and a charter and constitution were signed and adopted. In June of 1945, the congregation was officially received as a member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. Shortly thereafter plans were made for the construction of a church building.
The cornerstone of that original construction was laid on April 28 of 1946. In the late 1950’s it was decided that the church needed to be enlarged and that a Christian Education wing should be added. A second building program was therefore embarked upon, and dedication of that new facility was held on October 7, 1962. In 1975 a Christian Pre-School was opened to provide a Christian educational experience for the very young children of the congregation and the community. Again in 1993 it was felt that further expansion was necessary, and a third building program was effected. On Thanksgiving Eve of 1994 the congregation dedicated its newest expansion. Thus the Lord of the Church has visibly blessed the work of the Huntington Woods Lutheran Church. To Him alone be all the glory!
