Pastoral Call Update

Important!! Pastor Paul will be here Sunday August 6th for a meet and greet with the congregation.  There will then be a Congregational Meeting on Sunday August 13th immediately following the 2nd service to vote on extending the call and to accept the compensation package.  It is important that YOU have a chance to meet Pastor Paul on the 6th and even more important that you attend the congregational meeting on the 13th.  Please make every effort to attend both Sundays.  Pastor Paul is currently serving as Interim Senior Pastor at our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Virginia, MN. He has been an ordained Pastor for 18 years and has served as Interim Associate Pastor, CYF, Interim Senior Pastor, and a Senior Pastor.
