Pastor Nan Dehnke was ordained in 2009 after receiving her Master’s of Divinity degree at The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago and receiving her first call to the Indiana-Kentucky Synod. She enjoys creating and encouraging relationships for the sake of God’s mission in the world… collaboration, respect, and the Word guide God’s ministry through her. Chaplaincy, working with folks suffering with addictions, empowering leaders, nurturing faith and spirituality through the Word, the Sacraments, and relationships are some of the tools she uses to love God’s people wherever and whoever they are. With God, she leads to empower, encourage, and engage people to help them deepen their relationships with God and with one another.




Dear Friends in Christ,

   I pray that you have had a good week and that you are well and thriving. Prayer, for me, is manna in this desert (remember the bread that fell from heaven while the Israelites were traveling for 40 years?) of the pandemic.

   Our scripture texts for this Sunday are an interesting collection. We begin with Jonah and Nineveh. God comes to Jonah a 2nd time about the problems in Nineveh. Jonah tells the people and finally they listen and respond. Then to Psalm 62, God reminds us that power belongs to him and no other. He is our sanctuary. It concludes with the Gospel of Mark where Jesus calls more disciples and calls all of us to repent like the Ninevites....for the time is fulfilled.


It feels like winter is officially here. May you stay warm and healthy.


We join in prayer for the many who are sick and suffering with COVID and the 400,000+ who have died from it and their family and friends who grieve.

In Christ alone,

Pastor Nan
