Pastor Mark Tiede, who has been pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church since Easter 2014 recently had this to say about Welcoming:

“I am, and continue to be, amazed at this congregation’s interconnectedness. You are a people who truly love and appreciate each other and are remarkably gifted at seeking out and intentionally welcoming new faces. This is a value that is deeply set within you, which will serve you well as we continue to pursue God’s calling to be a people who Worship, Welcome, Grow, and Serve.”
