Our Goals and Aspirations
Our Church Council is meeting for their Annual Church Council retreat at the home of Chris and Kim Clark on Saturday, May 22.
In addition to talking about our theme of "Everyday Spirituality: Discovering a Life of Hope, Peace, and Meaning" a significant portion of our time together will be spent on compiling a list of short (immediate - 2 years) and long (2-5 years) term goals for our congregation. This is an important part of the process for obtaining congregational re-development funds from the Saint Paul Area Synod and ELCA, which was introduced to our Council and Call Committee as an important and necessary key to calling me as a full-time, experienced pastor.
As the Church Council prepares to make decisions about congregational goals, your input is important and would be appreciated. Please, if interested, take a few minutes to answer the following questions and share them with the Church Council.

I'll never forget the wooden decoupage wall hanging that hung next to the sink in my grandma's bathroom. The centered text amidst the flowers and beneath a rainbow simply read, "We don't know what the future holds, but we do know who holds the future."
All these years later, that image, and those words still resonate with me, and I hope with you now also, as we look forward in faith - together - as a congregation united - trusting in the one who knows our future. The Council and I look forward to hearing your responses. Thank you!
We'll see you in church!
