Church Board

Welcome Pastor Karna Moskalik

 
OSLC members participated in a special meeting on July 21 to vote on whether to call Pastor Karna Moskalik as settled senior pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Our decision was unanimously in favor of calling Pastor Karna to lead OSLC.
 
Pastor Karna enthusiastically accepted our congregation's call to lead OSLC. You can read her full response by reviewing her acceptance letter from July 21.
 
Karna's anticipated first day will be Monday, Sept. 9. If you'd like to learn more about Karna, her husband Brian and the gifts they'll bring to OSLC, please review Pastor Karna's bio.
 
Members of the call committee shared the process they used to select Karna from the quality candidates provided by the Synod. You can read more about the call process and the special meeting discussion by reviewing the meeting notes.
 
Watch for news in the coming weeks about preparing to welcome our new pastor in September.
