Little Norway Church Celebrates 150 Years of Grace

(6/23/12-Tony Hart) Imagine for a moment, if you will, going back in time 1-hundred fifty years. 

It's Sunday morning...you and your family are dressed up and ready for church.  As the horse and buggy take your family to a fellow parishioner's home for worship services, spoken in Norwegian. 

That's how it all began for the founding members of the Little Norway Lutheran Church.  This weekend they're celebrating 150 years of grace. 

In honor of the 150th Anniversary a Little Norway Cemetery map has been erected in front of the church.

Pastor Cal Thoreson expects good weather for the event and says the forecasters are cooperating splendidly!
