Transition News
The next step in the Call Process is the formation of a Transition Team.  Members of the team will work with Pastor Galen to complete the Ministry Site Profile which helps the Synod match our congregation with eligible ministers in our search.  So far, the following members have stepped forward to serve on the Transition Team:  Stefani Lekkas (Council Liaison), Katie Bultman, Caitlin Edstadt, Dave Jacobson, Erv Kleinsasser, Ginger Millner and Jeff Russum with one possible addition.  Please pray for them and discuss your thoughts with them and with Pastor Galen as we move forward in this process.

Worship with your Church Family

Worship 

Worship will be in the front of the church through Oct 4.  Bring your own lawn chair. 
Beginning on Sun, Oct 11 we will begin worshipping inside the church.  Masks will be required as long as the executive order is in place.  More details to follow. 

We will continue to Live Stream the services for those who aren’t comfortable coming to in-person Worship yet.

Church Cleaners Needed

We are in need of volunteers who would be willing to clean the church.  Openings available this week!  We are on a rotating schedule which is a full clean one week and then bathrooms and a couple other things the next.  You will receive a certificate for $25 for bathroom week and $100 for a full clean for scrip cards which help support the Preschool.
