December 3, the FIRST SUNDAY IN ADVENT, is also the 10th anniversary of the ordination of Jared Robert Stahler which we will celebrate at 11:00, 5:00 and at Brunch that day.
Jared will preside at 11, as is proper and Iâ€™ll preach at 8:45 and 11. Each mass this day begins with the Great Litany sung in procession. Brunch will be in honor of Pastor Stahler and the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Linman will lead a discussion on Lutherâ€™s motivation for writing the Small Catechism at the 10:00 a.m. Forum. â€” Rev. Amandus Derr
