October is Pastor Appreciation Month

Holden Members,

Today is Pastor Appreciation Day-Sunday October 10th. And the month of October is Clergy Appreciation Month. We have been blessed with strong pastoral leadership throughout Holden’s history. These blessings continue with our present Pastoral leader...Heather Culuris. As current council president, I have had the opportunity to work closely with Pastor on many issues and topics during my service. I greatly appreciate the guidance and leadership that Pastor brings to these conversations within her knowledge and background and always with reverence to the Word and Gospel. Her work on behalf of Holden, our congregation and our community is extensive and so valued!

Please join me in recognizing all that Pastor Heather does for us at Holden. Feel free to offer personal thanks, a note, an email and if able, please join us for Coffee Hour at Holden on Sunday Oct. 31st as an opportunity to personally thank Pastor for all she does. Thank you.

In your service,

Mary Kleese Holden Council President

Holden Lutheran Church reaches out with the love of the Lord to our families, neighborhood and community.

As a church community we are pursuing an integral faith. As thoughtful Christians, we deeply desire to make a lasting difference in our community. Because God's Word is so important, we emphasize Christian education and encourage participation in our Sunday School. Vacation Bible School is conducted in the summer. Text study is available for those who wish to inquire into the Lutheran faith.

We preach, teach and confess Jesus Christ as the only Savior of mankind. We administer the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper according to Christ's institution and command. We believe that through these sacraments God offers and seals the forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation to all believers.
