Prairie Wind Parish Council announces

that we will have congregational votes to call a pastor after a Meet-and-Greet

for both congregations on September 17th at Faith.  

The Meet-and-Greet will be from 6-7pm

followed by the congregational votes on whether or not we would like to extend a call.  

Please put the event on your calendars. 


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



On July 9th the members of Trinity Lutheran Church voted to leave the ELCA and effectively Prairie Wind Parish.  While I am saddened by this news I certainly understand their desire to do what they felt best for their congregation.

 

I am excited to inform you that Faith and Marion Hill remain committed to the Parish and are driven to continue its success.  The leadership on the Council has worked quickly and aggressively to make sure that this transition is as seamless as possible.  I am also excited to inform you that the members of the call committee have also be working hard.  A completed profile of the Parish as well as one for the individual churches has been submitted and is already receiving interest.

 

I am thrilled to announce that Megan has agreed to continue in her roll with the Parish.  She will be working in the office at Faith on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. 

 

Special thanks goes to Pastor Jim.  He has provided excellent leadership during his time with us. His guidance through the Parish transition has been very appreciated and was very needed.  We are grateful for the guidance and wisdom he and Linda Powers provided our confirmation class.

PARISH OFFICE


The Parish Office has been re-located to Faith, and I am there on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week 8:30-3:30. As always, if you have questions, need information, or have information, I can still be reached at office@prairiewindparish.org or at Faith’s number 785-238-6567 on those days. I am extremely happy to be with you in this transition and new chapter for the Parish.


I would like to take the time to thank all of you for a smooth move to the office at Faith. Thank you to Norma for sending me Ron to help carry boxes (thank you Ron) and for Madelyn who showed up one day with a pencil sharpener (thank you Madelyn), thank you to Calvin and Shari (and my husband) for helping rearrange Faith’s office to work better for me, also to Calvin for being on top of things in getting the copier situated for printer use with Key Office help, to Deb and Tonya for the many weeks of picking up the bulletins for Faith, to Pastor Jim for being an awesome pastor to work with these last 4 months, and finally to Derek and Linda and the Parish Council for making it possible for me to stay with the parish.~Megan
