Services began while the church during the construction although it had only dirt floors and planks placed on kegs were used for pews. In 1895, St Olaf Kirke was dedicated now with wood floors, pews, a wood stove, gas lights, stained glass windows, and pump organ. In 1897, the Ladies Aid Organization purchased the Swedish bell which still hangs in the bell tower. Today the simple rustic charm of this church still exist.
St Olafs Kirke is now used for special services at Easter, Christmas Eve, and other planned events. It is also available for wedding, baptisms and funerals.
St Olaf Kirke is yet another reminder of the strong community spirit that existed as folks from other countries settled in Texas. This historical church is worth a drive down the backroads!
