In His Divine Mercy, the Lord called His servant Don Ulven to his heavenly home on Sunday June 3rd. While we rejoice in the certain hope of Christ’s resurrection for all His saints, we grieve over the loss of our brother, and Marian’s husband. We will join together this Wednesday June 6th to remember Don and lay his body to rest to await with all the saints of God the return of our Savior, Jesus Christ. (10am visitation, Funeral service at 11:00)

Thanks for taking the time to visit with us here. By way of introduction, I’m Pastor Tom Rhodes. Look around our site and see how you might fit with us in Hearing, Sharing and Living the Gospel! 

Therefore God very wisely arranged and appointed things, and instituted the holy sacrament to be administered in the congregation at a place where we can come together, pray, and give thanks to God.

~M. Luther

God’s Peace to You, Pastor Tom Rhodes
