A congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)

FLC Congregational Meeting, Sunday, Jan. 24, 11:30am


Join us this Sunday, January 24th at 11:30am for a Special Congregational Meeting!

Council has hired Pastor David Zellmer as our interim pastor during this period of transition. We will be looking to call a new Senior and Associate Pastor, and our next step is to elect a Call Committee. This group will lead us through the process of calling a Senior Pastor, after which we will call an Associate Pastor.

A couple weeks ago, Council asked for volunteers for the Call Committee, and we thank those of you who reached out to us with interest! Council has elected six of those volunteers, the names which will be publicized before the meeting. It is now time for the congregation to elect these six members to the Call Committee:
Ross Abraham
Nichole Berkenhoff
Kelly Deckert
Billy McMacken
Debbie Pederson
Mark Sandager

We will have a special meeting this Sunday, January 24th at 11:30am, following the second service. There are two options to join us for this Special Meeting: Zoom or phone call--please see your email or postcard for the details.

We ask that you register for the meeting by either clicking the link on our website or calling the church office at 605-692-6251. We will need to meet quorum to vote (50 members) and move forward with the process of calling our new Senior Pastor, and this will help us ensure we meet quorum.

We hope to see all of you at next week’s meeting! If you run into other members of the congregation, please pass this information on to them. Just a reminder that you must be on the rolls as a First Lutheran member in order to vote. As always, if you have questions regarding this process or any other concerns, please feel free to reach out to any member of Council. Our email address is council@firstlutheranbrookings.org.

Thank You!
Tiff Lewis, President
