Newspaper clips - Finnish Apostolic Lutheran Congregation in Calumet

Jumping Finlander is Name of Calumet Church. Minneapolis Journal, February 4, 1906
I have previously written about the oldest Lutheran congregation founded by Finnish immigrants in the USA. It is called the Finnish Apostolic Lutheran Congregation and was established in Calumet, Michigan, in 1872. I have also compiled statistics including births, deaths, marriages and membership. More statistics will be here soon. Here some newspaper clips related to this Church. I've collected them from various American newspapers today.

The Apostolic Lutherans held so called "Big Meetings" / Conventions. Meeting was held in Calumet in 1911.

The congregation's priests were the father (Arthur Leopold Heideman, 1890 - 1928) and son (Paul Heideman (1911 - 1973). During this period the confirmation classes were huge (205 confirmands in 1911).
