VELKOMMEN!!! ~ FAMILY ORIGINS: TØNJUM, LÆRDAL PARISH, SOGN OG FJORDANE, NORGE

The following are photos of the Atlanta Lutheran Church, Ulen, Minnesota. Many of the Tinjum baptisms, weddings, and funerals have taken place here.




This is the only cross-shaped church in Sogn. It is of both architectural and liturgical interest, as the pulpit originally was placed above the altar.
