Thank You

To all those who helped in preparing for the Synod and Bishop Grote’s Episcopal visit. We are grateful to you who planted flowers and worked to make the building and property more attractive, who researched historical materials and prepared displays, who worked on the gifts for Synod attendees, and a host of other things. We could not have had such a meaningful Synod without your hard work and dedication.



Jim and Charlotte Corbett were confirmed by Bishop Grote on Sunday, June 18, 2006. We welcome you to the fellowship of this parish and pledge our commitment to you as fellow believers.



The Rev. Dr. Derrick Hassert was ordained a presbyter by Bishop Grote on Sunday. June 18, 2006. We deeply appreciate the ministry which Rev. Hassert has had in this parish as a deacon and will continue to have as a presbyter.
