Church in Minatare, Nebraska

I am trying to locate the church records for the church in Minatare Scotts Bluff, Nebraska – it was probably established as an Evangelical Lutheran Church or similar and closed in the 1950 or 1960s. The American Historical Society of Germans from Russia Nebraska Panhandle Chapter worked to get the church records from the area microfilmed. However, the Minatare records were not a part of that project – possibly when the church closed, the records were sent to a church in the area or possibly went with some of the leaders of the congregation? There were many Germans from Russia in the area. My Great Grandfather – George Heinrich (Henry) Stricker died in September 1913 and was living on “the old Cox Place” according to the death notice in the Minatare newspaper. His death certificate from the church signed by the minister of St James Lutheran Church in Scottsbluff – Pastor Eggold – indicated that he was buried in the Minatare cemetery. We also cannot find a grave for him. Any information would be appreciated
