Stevne Schedule


Please make plans now to be at the 2017 Stevne as we continue the next 100 years of Nordfjordlag In America! We will meet at Green Lake Bible Camp on Sunday, September 17 with a full day of activities starting at 9:00am.

The following schedule and costs are subject to change.


9:00 - 10:30

Registration / Morning coffee hour


Worship service at the Stave Church

Bridal couple: Martha McCartney and Robert Swanson

Stephanie Henricksen will play her Hardanger fiddle for the bridal march from the church down to the dining hall.

Please Note:

The Nordfjordlag bunad has become quite fragile and in order to preserve it, it will no longer be worn. Martha will be wearing her mother's traditional bunad this year. The board has authorized a new bunad, which is currently being made. Since this is a costly project, we are asking members to consider making a special donation to help fund this project by adding the word "bunad" under the Memorials category and entering an amount to be included in the total.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
