Transition in Wannaska:
Rev. Paul Koch served his last Sunday at the Wannaska Parish on June 7. We thank Pastor Koch for his 13 years of serving as pastor for the Wannaska Parish. This was his first call. Our prayers for him continue now as he begins his call at Howard Lake Lutheran Church. Rev. Blaine MacNeil has accepted the call to serve as the Interim pastor for the Wannaska Parish. Please do keep Rev. Blaine, the Wannaska Parish in your prayers as they work through this time of prayerful evaluation of their ministry.
