First Lutheran to Welcome Candidate for Lead Pastor June 12-13

By May 26, 2021June 7th, 2021News

On the weekend of June 12-13, First Lutheran Church will welcome our candidate to serve as Lead Pastor. The candidate is visiting us on the unanimous recommendations, after discernment, prayer and interviews, of both the Call Committee and the Church Council. Here is the schedule of public events.


Saturday 12-Jun 9:00 AM 11:00 AM Coffee Commons Area
Saturday 12-Jun 2:00 PM 4:00 PM Informal Meet and Greet Commons Area
Saturday 12-Jun 5:30 PM 6:30 PM Worship Service Sanctuary
Sunday 13-Jun 8:15 AM 9:20 AM Worship Service Sanctuary/Livestream
Sunday 13-Jun 9:30 AM 10:30 AM Fellowship Time and Q&A Session Activity Center
Sunday 13-Jun 10:45 AM 12:00 PM Worship Service Sanctuary
Sunday 13-Jun 12:00 PM 1:00 PM Nuer Worship Service Chapel


Please plan to attend as many of these events as you can. The candidate will preach at all three English-language worship services. The candidate will attend the Nuer-language worship service.

A gentle reminder that we are all asked to keep the candidate’s identity in confidence, including after the visit, for the sake of the candidate, the candidate’s family and the candidate’s home congregation.

On Sunday, June 20, following the 10:45 am worship service, a special congregational meeting and vote will be conducted to call the pastoral candidate.
