Aura Lutheran Church

Welcome to Aura Lutheran Church.

The Aura Finnish Lutheran Church was built in May, 1930, and was dedicated the same year on July 20th. Prior to the church being built, residents used the school house or homes to gather for church services.

Mr. Isaac Holso donated the property for the church. The contractor was Herman Matero of Nisula and the building committee consisted of Isaac Holso, Charles Makela, Lauri Holso, Olga Holso, John Mytty, Charles Maki, Sofia Ahonen, Matt Koski and Louis Waisanen.

The Aura Church is a small, quaint building sitting on a hill that overlooks Lake Superior, beautiful woodlands and rolling farmland. You can attend church services on the first and third Sundays at 4 p.m. from April through December. After the service, join us in the church dining area for some authentic 'Finnish' cooking and socialize with the local community members. You will feel right at home!
