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.
It is Friday and Sunday is coming!
Our gospel text from Matthew is about the weeds growing in with the wheat. We live in the ambiguity and let God be God. We are not.
Amazing next step: This Sunday, we begin a new thing at 10 am:
We again will worship in our building with physical distancing and masks.....but the best part is that we will be gathered again together.
And......the same service will also happen on Wednesday evening at 7 pm.
We will be gathered in the Word to give praise and thanks to God!
With Jesus at the center dear church, we will go forward and through this time of "worship in a pandemic".
As we move into this phase, we will be likely be anxious and we will grieve that is it new and different......so hold onto this truth:
God is with us and will lead us through. Change is hard, but God is always about transformation. I will be with you. I am here for you. Also, we will be community.
And for those who are not ready to return to in person worship, I will post a youtube service on email following Sunday's worship.
Held in my prayers and in my heart!
Hope to be with you on Sunday,
