The Call Process Update:  A joint congregational meeting was held after Worship on February 3rd to select a Pastoral candidate to extend a call to. After a brief discussion, voting was held by paper ballot. After the initial vote, none of the three candidates gained a simple majority of the votes, as required by our constitutions. Another vote was then held between the two who had received the most votes. In that vote a simple majority was cast for Rev. Loel Wessel. Next, a joint voters meeting was held with the Trinity and Concordia Voters. The joint voter’s assembly then passed a motion to cast a unanimous ballot to extend a call to Pastor Wessel. That was then followed with the passing of the same motion individually by each voting assembly. Call documents will now be filled out and sent as Pastor Wessel considers the call. Please keep Pastor Wessel, his family, and his current congregation, First English of Spring Valley Minnesota, as well as our two congregations and members in your prayers.  May the Lord’s will be done through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, as to what will best serve His Kingdom and all three of these His ministries involved.

 

CHRISTIAN TV SHOW: Main Street Living is now being broadcast on KCAU Sioux City and WFTC Channel 29 (aka “Fox 9 Plus” MyTV) in addition to KDLT Sioux Falls.  Air time is Sunday at 10 am. The first 30 minutes are remastered episodes of the classic “This is the Life” series from the 70’s and 80’s. The second half of the program is a modified Lutheran worship service that features a different Pastor each week, from the station’s broadcast area. It features many aspects of church worship; with an Invocation, confession and absolution, The Apostles Creed, the week’s Scripture readings, and a sermon.  Hymns are sung by area church choirs.  It’s a wonderful evangelistic ministry that shares the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with the unchurched and shut-in.  It is also great to utilize on Sundays you are unable to attend worship.  online at www.mainstreetliving.com

Note From The Congregational Presidents:  Beginning in December, time for services will be 10:00 am with Bible Class held at 9:00 am before worship at the church where service is held. Having joint services makes it easier for the Pastors who are taking time to help us. We encourage all of our members to make a special effort to attend all services in whatever church. Every-one’s support is needed as we go through this vacancy with God leading us.
