The important process of calling a new pastor for Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church is being led by a Call Committee of congregation members, with support from the Minneapolis Area Synod.
As part of the process, a Ministry Site Profile was developed. This document describes our congregation and our priorities, and helps identify potential candidates. On March 30, congregation members joined Bishop Ann Svennungsen to discuss the profile.
May 15 update: The Call Committee has nearly completed its first round of interviews with pastoral call candidates. Soon we will be faced with the hard decision of narrowing the list to a few candidates for a second interview. From there, we will prayerfully discern the best fit for Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church.
Please plan to be part of a virtual congregational meeting on Sunday, June 28 (time to be determined). You will have the chance to meet the final call candidate and vote on accepting that person as our senior pastor. The Call Committee and Church Council, with guidance from the synod, are working through logistics of the virtual meeting and voting process. The Committee appreciates your continued prayers.
