The John and Ingeborg Kirkvold family attended Singsaas Lutheran Church northwest of Hendricks. When originally built, it was a replica of the church they attended in the Singsaas parish in Norway. People who were neighbors in Norway were again neighbors in Dakota Territory and western Minnesota, already a state when they arrived. For photos and to learn why they call it the "Mother Church," see http://www.hendricksmn.com/singsaas/.
