Excerpt for the(75th Anniversary, 1958 - Evangelical Covenant Church, Norway, Michigan
"For some reason, twelve years after the first organization of the church they met again, this time in 1894 for the purpose of reorganizing the congregation. This time thirteen people became charter members of the church. They are, Peter Johnson, chairman, Charles Almquist, secretary, Charles Thorpe, treasurer; A P Asp, deacon, E E Hendrickson, deacon, Mrs Ida Asp, Martin Bjorkman, August Gustafson, Emma Gustafson, Mina Gustafson, Anna Gustafson, J P Stenberg, and Ulrica Johnson.
At the next business session of the church in December the following new members were welcomed into the congregation, Mr Joh E Anderson, Mrs Charles Almquist, Mrs Charles Thorpe, and Mrs Peter Johnson.
The first Sunday School sessions were held in the Turnblom home on Main (Nelson) Street, beginning in 1894. Many of the church services were still held in the homes of members of the congregation, until the Norwegian Luthera church became available for their use on Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
When the group finally realized the urgent need for a church home, efforts were first made to purchase the Norwegian Lutheran Church. When these efforts failed they immediately set upon the task of securing a building site. The site was donated by the mining company. The cost of the original building was approximately $1200.00. More than half of this sum was raised within a few weeks, again revealing the real interest in the work. The original structure erected in 1898 is still a part of the present building used by the congregation (SE corner of Brown & 8th Ave). Remodeling projects carried on at various times has resulted in the present structure."
