PASTOR NAN DEHNKE

  

   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…..so 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,
 
Today is International Food Day, a call to us to be responsive in prayer and giving for people who are starving from lack of food, and people who are food insecure. We pray and we begin collecting items for the THANKSGIVING and CHRISTMAS BASKETS.
 
With that, this Sunday's Gospel text from Matthew is another "discussion" between Jesus and the Pharisees. This time, the Pharisee trickery is about a coin with images on both sides: how does one know what to pay Caesar and what we owe to God?
 
A NOTE ABOUT WORSHIP SERVICES AFTER NOV 1
Last Sunday, we had our annual congregation meeting. The budget for 2021 was approved and it was decided to make a change to our worship schedule.
Due to the time change on November 1, and the reality that we have open spaces in the fellowship room on Sundays, it was decided that as of November 1, we will have worship on Sundays only.Wednesday night worship will cease for the time being. Our council will re-assess as we continue through the pandemic.
