April 19 was an evening filled with love, joy, music and worship at our new Pastor’s Service of Ordination. The sanctuary was filled with the Holy Spirit and as the many people that have walked with Emmy in pursuit of her Call gathered together to worship.

Pastor Emmy will preach and lead her first worship service as Pastor of Grace Lutheran Church on Sunday, April 24 at 10 AM. The service will include officially marking her Call with a Service of Installation. Pastor Deb Stehlin, from the Minneapolis Area ELCA Synod will be joining us. All are welcome!

Congregation Votes to Extend Call!

It is with great joy that we announce Grace Lutheran Church has voted to extend a call to Ms. Emmy Kegler to serve as our new pastor! The congregational meeting was held Sunday, April 3, 2016 after our 10 AM Worship service. The Call Committee presented an excerpt of one of Emmy’s sermon videos, her bio, highlights from her profile, impressions from interviews, and a summary on why the committee chose her. There was time for discussion and to ask questions of the Call Committee members before the vote. The result of the vote was 42 yes, 2 no and 2 blank ballots. Emmy is a Candidate for Ordained Ministry of the ELCA. Plans are underway for an April 19th ordination and for Emmy to preach and lead her first worship service as our pastor on April 24, 2016.
