A virtual meeting with the Pastor, Board of Elders, and Planning Council was held on May 13. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss a congregational return to the sanctuary for the Divine Service.

Returning to the Sanctuary to worship together and receive God’s gifts in Word and Sacrament is something for which we thank God with great joy. Yet, we also know that many will have reservations and will be reluctant to return right away for many reasons. Please know that we will endeavor to respond to all with love and patience. In all circumstances, we look in faith to our risen Lord Jesus who has defeated sin, death, hell, and the devil for us. He holds us in His perfect love.

In Christ,

Pastor LaFeve
