Pastor D.J. on Summer Break - June 1 thru August 31

As part of our call process with Pastor D.J., it was negotiated that he be hired at three quarters time which means he has a substantial part of the summer off because that is the busy season for his wife, FLL Camp director Amanda, and he is needed to help care for their four children.  Pastor D.J.  will be preaching one weekend a month at United throughout the summer and will be available "on call" to take care of funerals, emergencies, or other issues that may arise.

Memories of Mine

A tribute to our area's mining history is going to be built near United's parking lot retaining wall.  As many of you know, the boulders in the retaining wall are from the Old Bristol Mine area.  Therefore we are offering the opportunity for folks to make a donation to have a plaque attached to one of the boulders in memory of loved ones who once worked or were affected by the mining industry.  We are asking for donations of $100 - $400, depending on the size of the boulder you would like.  Print the following form and mail it  along with a check made out to United Lutheran Church:  Memories of Mine form
