Atlanta Lutheran Church, Ulen, MN

A parishioner told me about this church outside Ulen so my younger son and I went to find it one evening last week.  You can see Atlanta Lutheran from a long way off as its’ steeple rises high above the flat farmland that surrounds it.  It is a gorgeous building and the grounds and building are well kept even though the church sign says the congregation closed in 2001.  Established in 1878, this congregation still gathers for one service a year, usually in August around Ulen’s annual Turkey days.
