Pastor Steve’s last worship service with us on Sunday.
O God of all creation, whose love for all is trustworthy and true, help each of us to trust you who holds the future. During our time together we have experienced laughter and tears, hopes and disappointments. Guide us as we carry these cherished memories with us in new directions until that time when we are completely one with you and with one another. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
Go now, Pastor Steve, with our blessing, surrounded by our love and led by the promises of God, the presence of Christ Jesus and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Throughout our history, we have remained committed to drawing on our Lutheran (ELCA) tradition of using meaningful worship, content-rich learning and warm hospitality to care well for our congregation, the surrounding community and the world.
