50th Anniversary Celebration
By Rev. John Stirewalt
Bishop Yoos thanked the recipients saying, “Think about all the baptisms, funerals, weddings and confirmations these servants have seen and all the ways they have taught and shared the love of Jesus Christ.” Asked to speak, Mel Amundson joked, “My word is, ‘Someone take this cane away from me.’” He also reflected, “I want God to bless every one of you for your remembrance given to me, the service you have given and the blessings you have bestowed on me. God is good all the time and you are a blessing to me and I really appreciate it.”
This is Christ’s Church. There is a place for you here.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person–questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.
