Grand Haven Scandinavian SDA Church Information

Note: I was looking to find any history that I could on Jens Halvorsen via the Internet and I came across a document entitled, "A CHRONOLOGICAL DIRECTORY OF INDUSTRIES, BUSINESSES, AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS IN NORTHWEST OTTAWA COUNTY, 1808-1975," from Grand Haven. This document has the following section that refers to Jens and Amelia Halvorsen, as charter members of the Grand Haven SDA Church, originally called the "Grand Haven Scandinavian Seventh-Day Adventist Church." Although it doesn't talk much about Jens and Amelia, I found it interesting and thought you might enjoy reading it.

Read about the beginning of the Grand Haven Scandinavian SDA Church, now called Grand Haven SDA Church, Grand Haven, Michigan.
