Churches


Eidfjord Lutheran Church

Eidford Lutheran Church is located in Dover Township, approximately 6 miles west of Walum. In 1924 Union, Eidfjord, St. Olaf and Hannaford became a parish. In 1959, Hannaford Congregation was granted a release from the Hannaford Parish. This resulted in the formation of the Trinity Parish of Union, St. Olaf and Eidfjord.

The 100th anniversary of Eidfjord was celebrated in June of 1985. Several former members and friends came back to celebrate the occasion.  The Eidfjord Lutheran Church closed in 2012.

Faith Lutheran Church

Faith Lutheran Church is located 1 block off main street to the west in Hannaford. In 1992, Faith Lutheran Church became a part of Tri-County Ministry. Eight area congregations were without a pastor, and the synod office of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America suggested we try a yoked ministry. It was not an easy decision, however; we were breaking new ground in the Lutheran Churches throughout the US. Worship Services are held at 11:15 am each Sunday, with Sunday School starting at 10:00 am.
