**Welcome To Our New Pastor!**

Pastor Brad!


First Lutheran would like to give a very warm welcome to our new interim Pastor, Reverend Dr. Brad Miller! He will be starting his new position on June 26th, and his first sermon here will be on July 2nd. We would love for you all to get a chance to meet him, so the Fellowship Committee has planned a fun brunch event to enable us all to get familiar with our new pastor. This event will follow the worship service on July 2nd. 
If you are wanting to assist with this event, please contact Laura Allar at (641)-226-4212.
