Wisconsin Synod Meetings: Our congregation is part of a larger church body, the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod).  In odd-numbered years, the WELS has synod conventions which pastors and delegates from one in ten congregations attend.  This year, Pastor Martin is the delegate for this area in the WELS.  The Synod convention will take place July 31-August 3.
In preparation for the Synod Convention, our district of the WELS (the Southeast Wisconsin District) has a conference this Tuesday and Wednesday, at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wisconsin.  Pastor Martin will attend that in preparation for the Synod Convention.
 
Pastor Will Be Out: On Monday afternoon through Wednesday, Pastor Martin will be attending the District Conference near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Please call Elder Brien Grace if in need of pastoral care or advice, at 270-501-0570.
