We would like to announce with love and blessings that our Interim Pastor Nancy Hong's (and River’s) last Sunday with us will be May 29th, 2022.

Her role as Interim Pastor has allowed us to grieve the retirement of Pastor Tim and to evaluate what the future holds for us at as a ministry of the   Lutheran Church.

While the Mission and Vision Task Force, Pastor Dave and Vision Council have been working with these processes, Pastor Nancy has been leading us in worship, Bible studies, so many    classes, dancing, with our daily tasks, and so much of the COVID responses! What a year it has been!


Sunday, May 29th Pastor Nancy will lead us in worship and we will have a reception following.

Please send cards and well wishes to the office this month or visit to share our appreciation!

Graduation Milestone  Sunday, June 5

We’ll be celebrating all high school graduates on Sunday, June 3 at our 9:30 am worship service.   If you are able to join us (and I really hope you are!) we’ll have a special worship, prayer, blessing, and candle for graduates.  I’d love to include a photo slideshow as well so please send me two photos of your graduate: a current senior year/grad photo and a favorite baby photo.  (Any church favorite photos would be fun to see too!)  If you have plans set for next year, I’d love to hear where these amazing students are heading.  If you don’t know what the next year will bring, we’ll have prayers in worship for that too.  

I hope you can join us!

I'd like to have all the photos by/before Memorial Day Weekend.
