The Lutheran Church in America (LCA) was created in 1962 by the merging of the United Lutheran Church in America (ULCA), the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (Suomi Synod), the American Evangelical Lutheran Church (AELC), and the Augustana Lutheran Church. The Red River Valley Conference of the Augustana Lutheran Church then became the Red River Valley Synod of the Lutheran Church in America including districts in northwestern Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. The Lutheran Church in America existed until 1987 when the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) was created.
