Biographical history

Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church, located at 4 Second Street in Saint John, New Brunswick, began as a congregation of Danish immigrants who came to Canada in the early 1900s. Elijah Danish Lutheran Church was organized on November 15, 1931 with the assistance of Pastor Ravnkilde Møller. Various buildings in the community were used for services before the Second Street property was acquired in 1935. Rev. Emil Nommesen was called to lead the congregation in 1947, and the name was changed to First Danish Evangelical Lutheran Church. In 1949 a fire destroyed the church building, and the new building was dedicated on August 7, 1950. In July 1966 the congregation changed the current name, Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church.
