Faith Lutheran Church Cemetery

Grove Park Township, Section 23, Polk County, MN

North of Mentor on County Road 12 
 

Faith Lutheran Church was organized in 1903 and was first called “Mentor Norwegian Evangelical Lutheran Congregation” and the church was built in 1906.  In January of 1955 the decision was made to rename the church to Faith Lutheran Church.  The land for the cemetery was purchased from William W. Attix in 1904 and Chester Galland donated more land in 1955.  This church is still active.  Additional information in ( ).
