First Lutheran Church
By Elmer E. Jensen
When I think of the history of First Lutheran, I have to bring in a little background of personal family history. Dad was born in Denmark. Mother was born in Mist, which is just a few miles from Clatskanie. Both were brought up Lutheran. Mom was a school teacher in Goble, and Dad worked on the train ferry which ran between Goble and Kalama when they met and then married.
