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.
