What is happening

Faith Works: A Fresh Look at the Book of James

Throughout this season of Lent, Sunday mornings will feature a series of messages from the book of James. James, a perennial favorite among many for its simple and direct focus on our actions as followers of Jesus, was among the earliest writings of the Christian church and still speaks to new generations of believers. Ever practical for daily living, we will be looking at what James has to say about the working of our faith using the following six themes. And by the way, this might be a great time to join a Life Group for this series.

Annual Meeting Recap

Our congregation’s Annual Meeting was held on Sunday, February 21. At the meeting the congregation not only passed a balanced general ministry budget, but also voted to approve a letter of call to Mark Solhjem to serve as the congregation’s Executive Pastor. While Mark’s journey to ordination started many years ago when he left Atonement and headed for Luther Seminary in St. Paul, his calling took some twists and turns along the way. With the completion of his Master of Divinity degree from The Master’s Institute this last year, and with his certification for ordination by the Board of Ministry of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC), the congregation made Mark’s call official. Congratulations to Pastor Mark Solhjem.

Additionally the congregation elected Seth Morken, Derine Winning, and Crystal Whalen to serve three year terms on congregation’s Board of Directors; Lori Schmidt, Eric Winge, and Blake Strehlow to serve three year terms on the board of our Congregational Fund; Paul Lybeck to serve a one year term on the board of our Congregational Fund; and Karen Andersen to serve a three year term on the congregation’s Financial Review Team. Thank you to all of these individuals who will offer oversight in these various capacities and for those currently serving.

Following the Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors met to elect officers for the coming year (March 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022). Sean Meyer was elected to serve as Board President, Seth Morken was elected to serve as Board Vice President, Jackie Schluchter was elected to serve as Board Secretary, and Derine Winning was elected to serve as Board Financial Liaison. In addition to these individuals, Dan Burgess, Kate Fredrick, Deb Haarsager, Roger Munson, and Crystal Whalen will comprise our Board of Directors for the coming year.
