Dear Members of St. Andrew Lutheran Church:
This past summer our former DCE, Emily Leising, took a call to serve another congregation. This has left St. Andrew with the smallest amount of called staff for Public Ministry since 1975, when Pastor Asmus and DCE Koehler were installed.
In order to help our congregation determine the direction for our future ministry, and particularly in regards to the make-up of our “Called Staff” for Public Ministry, our St. Andrew Church Council has directed that a “Congregational Self Study” be made. All members are being encouraged to fill in this Self Study form – including adding whatever other additional thoughts and insights you feel would be helpful.
Once we have gathered and summarized your input, we are also planning to hold one or more congregational meetings to further discuss the findings and questions raised by this Self Study. Our Church Council and other Boards have also been asked to place this discussion on their agendas throughout this time of Self Study. It is our hope to be able to have come up with a plan for our future to be voted on at our November Voters Meeting.
PLEASE RETURN TO THE CHURCH OFFICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (and preferably by October 10th)
TO HELP FACILITATE OUR SELF STUDY PROCESS! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
St. Andrew Congregational Self Study Committee / Ken Koehler, Chairman (701-429-3092)
