Vacation Bible School set at Trinity Lutheran
Trinity Lutheran Church has invited children age 4 through fifth grade to its “Weird Animals” Vacation Bible School on Aug. 11-15 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The program teaches kids about the love of God through humorous interactions with “weird animals.” Each day, children will rotate through several stations, including singing, games, storytelling and crafts. They finish the morning with group worship.
Mission projects are a big part of Trinity’s Vacation Bible School. This year, children will collect money to construct a water tower at a school in Tanzania.
Trinity’s weeklong event is open to all children, regardless of their faith. Cost is $45, but scholarships are available. To register, visit www.TrinityLC.org and click on “Register” at the bottom of the screen or call Kristin Tranby at 651-439-7400 ext. 120.
St. Andrew’s names names new pastor
Members of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi last month voted to call the Rev. Michael Carlson to be their lead pastor.
Carlson will begin his work at St. Andrew’s in mid-August and will be installed in a celebration service on Sept. 21.
Carlson served St. Andrew’s as executive pastor for more than six years before accepting a brief call as senior pastor of Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church in Prior Lake. Among his accomplishments during his time at St. Andrew’s, Carlson was instrumental in launching the Community Resource Center, which provides assistance such as emergency shelter, job search, counseling, and more.
