From the Pastor

Office Hours at Mathesius Hall – I want to be here for you and to help you. Therefore, we have initiated office hours in Mathesius Hall. I will be there on Tuesdays from 12 noon to 4 p.m. And Martin Damašek (our new deacon) and I willl have office hours on Friday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. We encourage you to stop buy for a visit at these times. If you want to speak about faith issues or even to make confession, these would be appropriate times  to do so as well. Please come by even if you are looking for someone to chat with about your life, the church and where it is going.

Home Visits – I would love to be able to come to your house and meet all your family. I think this will make me a better pastor to you. Therefore, I am offering to come and to use the Order of Blessing a Home. If you want to schedule a home blessing, just call me at 607 645 218.
