An Historic Crossroads

A letter went out on May 28 from our congregation council to the members of our congregation in regard to a "first vote to determine" if our local church should "terminate its relationship with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) as based on section C6.05 of the congregation's constitution."  The vote is scheduled at a special congregation meeting to be held here at the church on Wednesday, June 23, 2010, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

If you wish to see a copy of this letter, please contact our church office - 320-286-6169.

Feel free to contact me for my own perspective on this vote--or call the office and ask for a copy of our recent newsletter, the Parish Pulse.

This is a very difficult time for all. Difficult times always call for prayer. We'll gather for prayer at 6:30 tonight as we usually do on Thursdays.  Please come if you can.  In any case, please pray that God's Will, and God's Will alone, would be done. 
Matthew 6:9-13
Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not bring us to the time of trial,
    but rescue us from the evil one.
