Updated Worship Supply Lists:
We have asked those on our worship supply lists to indicate which formats for worship they are comfortable with during this time of COVID-19. These lists will be updated as we receive responses. Worship supply availability for each rostered minister may change from time to time, so what is listed is a general idea of availability. If a rostered or lay minister’s preferences re: travel distance or worship formats are not included, please contact the individual for more information.
Help us keep these documents updated with any comments or suggestions. Contact:
Blessed Christmas! This sermon is provided for congregational use for Christmas Day or any time during the Christmas season when congregations may welcome a sermon on the Christmas text of John 1:1-14. It may be shown as a video, or the text provided may be proclaimed. However you find it useful, know that our prayers are with you, that you might know the promises of God as we celebrate the Word-made-flesh in Jesus.
Thank you to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Redwood Falls for letting us use their space for filming.
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.
