What a fantastic NW District Gathering was recently enjoyed by all at Lutherhaven. Thanks to all our bakers that provided cookies for breaks and snack times. It was a great and uplifting gathering time for our area LCMC churches!

Most of the congregation has returned to in-person worship and fellowship time. We are still providing a video of the service uploaded by Sunday afternoon online at: You may use this link for all videos including mid-week inspirations. Want to have some fun? Once you’re on the site, click on the Video tab on top and see all the videos produced since March 19, 2020 (shutdown). They are amazing and tell the story of where we were at one year ago confronting the pandemic crisis. I especially love the inspiration messages by Pastor Jon in the car, Ham & Eggs, message series, even Easter 2020 on a mountaintop, and so many others. Check it out! – Lynn Affeldt

Each year we like to honor our high school graduates by wrapping them in the love of the church by way of a beautifully handcrafted quilt by the Dorcas group. Owen DeWitt is our only graduate this year, and since he is off to work at Lutherhaven this summer the first Sunday in June, we’ll wish him well on May 30 at the 10 am service! The following Sunday, Jun 6, is Teacher Appreciation along with three blessed Baptisms!

The Dorcas Quilting group is taking a break for summer, but holding a special get together on June 28, at 9 am and all are invited! They will be working on only one quilt and learning all the aspects of quilt making together from A-Z. If you have ever wanted to learn quilting, this is the day to have a fun, hands-on experience!

You can see from our quick calendar below, our friends from Chorale CDA are vamping up their meeting times  interviewing for a new artistic director, auditions, and board meetings to make decisions for the coming performance season. We are so encouraged by their regrouping and live presentations again this fall (hopefully) and Christmas concerts!

Save the Date: Saturday afternoon, July 17!!

Please join us for a get-together at our home to visit with Pastor Kurt and Diann Wandrey, who will be here from Texas. We will enjoy food and beverages and find out who really is the champ at Corn Hole! Further details will be provided as the date gets closer. – JoAnn Solberg and Rick Straub
