Camano Lutheran Church--1904

The church was founded in 1890 and the first meetings were in the schoolhouse. The present site was donated in 1900 and the church finished in 1904.
The pulpit, baptismal font and beautiful altar were carved and inlaid by some of the early members using old country skills. There is a finely detailed painted wood screen at ceiling height separating the chancel from the rest of the church.
Inscribed on the altar is the biblical phrase in Norweigian "Kommer hid til mig, Alle" (Come unto me, all).
