Today the next chapter begins for Friedens as Karen Althouse, S.A. L. M. has been assigned to us as an Interium Pastor. What does SALM stand for you ask? The answer is a Synodically Authorized Lay Minister, and Karen has been a SALM for approximately 12 years. Friedens is blessed to be able to have her guidance and compassion through this time of transition, as we continue to search, and hopefully continue to discover the paths that God points us to, to fulfill his works. She will conduct Frieden’s Ash Wednesday service this evening, at 7:00 pm. Welcome Karen!
