Because Lutherans value community (pt.2): we take time to celebrate community both at the church and beyond the walls. Even across the country! Pastor Kelsie is back from Minnesota and is already looking forward to attending the ELCA YMNET Extravaganza 2023 next year in California. Look how powerful her presence is in this photo! She says that it was an amazing event for youth ministers and volunteers from around the country. "It was my honor to be a part of the Learning Team and put this impactful conference on." From leading yoga to designing the baptismal font for General Session, Pastor Kelsie blessed the folks there with her gifts. We missed her, though, and glad she's back with new energy and insight. We are better together.
