A Very Special Worship Service, indeed...and this week's Saturday's Work will Just Have to Wait.

Hubby and his good friend, Brum,
were given the opportunity to serve on our church's call committee.
And after a year of meetings, we are blessed with a new pastor.

The Rite of Ordination for a new pastor is hosted by her home congregation,
therefore a road trip to this quaint little church in Madison.

The Processional was impressive with many visiting pastors in attendance.
Bishop Zellmer was there as the Presiding Minister and to deliver the message.

This is our group that traveled from her new church home
to celebrate this day with her.

In fact, Erin enjoyed a large support group of family and friends.

Pastor Erin and her hubby have an adorable daughter.

And you know how Lutheran church women put on a reception...
sandwiches, pickles, nuts, mints, and cake.

Welcome to your new church home, Pastor Erin.

Take care,
~Natalie

A joyous celebration indeed Natalie! Our new pastor was ordained in MN a year ago, his wife was consecrated in IN as a Diaconal Minister last fall (their home congregation states) and now they both serve us here in MI. Yes, the Lutheran Church Basement Ladies put on a meal like no other! ~*~Lisa
