We are very pleased to announce that our congregation has issued a call to Tim Tahtinen to be pastor of Divine Word/Pentecost. Tim has been serving us since this summer on a contract basis and he has about 20 years of service in youth ministry. He is energetic, insightful and is the right person to lead us into the next step of our church life. This is his first call, and we are inviting you to help us celebrate his ordination.
Please join us this Sunday at 4 pm for the Ordination Service followed by a meal and fellowship.
