Tanum Forest celebrating 150 years

The oldest Lutheran church in Door County is commemorating its 150th year with a series of events this summer.  Tanum Forest Evangelical Lutheran in Vignes was founded by Norwegian immigrants in 1872.  Pastor Peter Mannoja says the history of the parishioners dates back to two separate congregations.

 

 

He says the roots of many of the faithful followers come from the farming community and go back many generations.  Tanum Forest Church has been celebrating its 150th anniversary every month in 2022.  A special Tractor Show is planned on the church grounds on Highway OO coming up on Saturday, June 25, from 11 am until 3 pm.  You can listen to the entire interview with Pastor Mannoja on the podcast page here.
