A Fresh Start

As we kick off January 2018, we would like to take a moment to thank everyone for a wonderful and busy past year!  We hope you all enjoyed the holiday season with your families and friends.  We now starting a fresh year and we are excited for what is in store for the church and our congregation.  If you have questions on anything below, please reach out to the church office by calling, emailing, submitting a contact form on the website, or sending us a Facebook message.

January Pass Around Offering:  This month’s offering will go to the Clergy Coach Fund.  Over the last two years, our synod has been blessed by hosting a fund which is used to subsidize ELCA rostered leaders to get coaching by ICF (International Coach Federation) accredited coaches to enhance their leadership, health, vision and management skills. Over these years, over 60 leaders have received coaching, though it would not have been possible without this fund which allows there to be both a sliding fee scale as well as an additional subsidy so that any rostered leader should be able to afford the coaching. The belief is that healthier leaders in turn support healthier congregations. In recent years, we have also seen pastors leaving the ministry for a variety of reasons. The coaching process offers the support and encouragement to help our leaders stay in rostered ministry which is a benefit to the church at large.
