+Southwestern Minnesota Synod, ELCA
Summer is often a difficult time to find pastors and lay people to do worship supply. This summer in particular has been a challenge, especially for those congregations that are currently without a pastor or interim to serve them. For this reason your synod office will make a sermon written and preached by one of the Synod Ministers, Bishop Jon, or Bishop Elect Dee Pederson available to our congregations beginning Sunday, July 4th, and running through the end of August. The sermons will be available in video, audio, and printed versions and will follow the Revised Common Lectionary. There will be no bulletins or hymn suggestions paired with these sermons. We hope this will serve as one way we can support our congregation leaders and members as they continue to move forward God’s mission in the world.
