It is with great joy that we announce Grace Lutheran Church has voted to extend a call to Ms. Emmy Kegler to serve as our new pastor! The congregational meeting was held Sunday, April 3, 2016 after our 10 AM Worship service. The Call Committee presented an excerpt of one of Emmy’s sermon videos, her bio, highlights from her profile, impressions from interviews, and a summary on why the committee chose her. There was time for discussion and to ask questions of the Call Committee members before the vote. The result of the vote was 42 yes, 2 no and 2 blank ballots.
