Pastor's Greeting

Welcome to Holden Lutheran Church!  Holden as a congregation has a long and rich history within the Kenyon area!  Worship is a central focus of our congregation, with tremendous leadership and music each Sunday!  Holden also has many active ministries in which it participates from Sunday School to Vacation Bible School, Choir and Youth Group, Women's Groups and Bible Studies.  Members of Holden are involved in acts of service in a variety of ways: bringing communion to our elderly members, serving on mission trips, collecting food for local food shelves, quilting, keeping up the cemetery and park properties.  Holden is also in partnership with 7 other local congregations in supporting a seminary intern as they prepare for ministry in the church!  You are invited to join us for worship and other events!
