Contemporary Worship Service
On Sunday, April 26, the 10:30 am worship was a contemporary service held in Luther Hall. Luther Hall was filled to capacity. A praise band, multimedia use, children’s participation, and more were the hallmarks of the service. This offering was in response to the request for worship variety as expressed in the fall dessert meetings and was intended to be an experiment so that we have some experience in a very different worship format.
Prior to the service, members of the congregation listened to the pastor talk about contemporary worship and heard some of the music that will be used.

The installation of The Rev. Dr. Duane C. Pederson was held Sunday, November 15. The Southern Conference Dean of the New England Synod, Rev. Marjo Anderson, lead the installation, and Rev. Mark Lingle, Rector of St. Francis Episcopal Church of Stamford preached. Everyone enjoyed a reception after the service.
