NORWAY - On Sunday the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Norway will celebrate their third annual Coming Home Service.
The Good Shepherd congregation renovated their historic church building at 815 Iron Street in Norway after being out of the building for one year. After the renovation of the structure, the congregation celebrated its first Coming Home Service on Aug. 22, 2010.
The church building, which was built in 1880 on Nelson Hill in Norway, was moved to its present location in 1891, using logs and horses.
It was originally known as the Swedish Lutheran Church. It is the oldest continuously occupied church building in the area.
The Sunday service will be held at 10:30 a.m. and will include special music by Carl Anderson of St. Petersburg, Fla.
An outdoor potluck barbeque will follow the service.
The public is invited to join the members of Good Shepherd in this special celebration.
