The "Church on the hill" was built by the people of Verndale in 1916. The lumber was hauled from Humboldt by team an oxen. The head carpenter was Llewellyn Bartlett. The land for the church was donated by Bill Mueller. It began as a non-denominational church, the local people would call pastors from the different denominations to serve them. Later it was organized as a Lutheran church and Rev. Louis Bollefer was the first pastor. Then Rev. Frank Bollefer served the congregation until the 1950s.
Its location on one of the highest hills around, made the name Mount Calvary most appropriate.
