Until 1868 the rapidly growing Norway Lake settlement had no regular place of worship. In the fall of that year a church of logs was hastily constructed. It would serve as the Norway Lake church until 1875 with Rev. L.J. Markhus as the pastor.

It can be considered as the "Mother Church" of six present day Lutheran congregations in the area: East Norway Lake, First, Hope, Monson Lake, South Lake Johanna, and West Lake.

In Memory of Orlynn Mankell
