On Sunday, December 3, 2017, Pastor Rick Thompson completed his call at Holy Shepherd Lutheran. Now that Pastor Rick has retired, the congregation has begun to go through a period of intentional discernment and prayer about where God is leading us. Pastor Kari Reiquam, a transitional interim pastor, has been placed in our congregation from the Rocky Mountain Synod, to help guide the congregation through this transition. We will continue to communicate directly with the congregation during the transition, and will archive that communication on this page. Please send any questions about the transition to office@holyshepherd.com
