Dear friends in Christ,

Grace and Peace are yours in abundance! Amen.

Even though Governor Lee has offered to re-open many businesses in our state, this does not necessarily include churches. After prayerful consideration, our synodical bishop, Rev. Kevin Strickland, has requested that SE Synod ELCA churches remain closed through the month of May. We will agree to this suggestion. Bear with us all!

I am always available if you need pastoral assistance. That will not stop because of this situation. We will be giving more details about other changes in the meantime as we discuss those needs. In the meantime, pray for our community – our state – our nation – and our world.

Remember that God loves you and so do we! Blessings to you all.

Pastor Jim
