The Reverend Virginia Aebischer, Bishop of the South Carolina Synod, will be presiding at this ordination and the Reverend Susan Crowell, Senior Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Greenville, South Carolina will preach.
Amanda has been called by Redeemer Lutheran Church of Columbia, South Carolina to be their associate pastor.
All ordained, consecrated, and commissioned ministers are invited to robe and participate. Red is the color of the day.
For the health and safety of all, masks are required to attend this service. The service will be live-streamed on Redeemer’s Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/relu.church for those who are not able to be physically present.
Gracious and loving God, you built your Church on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, and you instituted the office of the holy ministry so that apostolic and prophetic Word might be heard throughout the ages. Grant that this new pastor may minister faithfully in the power of your Spirit; through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd. Amen.
