We have an awesomely active and hugely helpful cadre of volunteers!  These people share their talents and give many hours of their time and without them we would not be able to function!  They assemble bulletins, serve coffee, answer the phone, fix the HVAC system, decorate for special days, water flowers and pull weeds, spend quality time with our youth, sing, attend meetings, climb tall ladders to change light bulbs, teach Sunday School, lead an exercise class, bake, shovel snow ... well, you get the idea.  The jobs are easier (and more fun!) when many participate.  Want to help? We'll find something for you to do -- just ask!  Check out our Connect & Participate and Support & Serve pages for additional information.

Pastor Lee Hallstrom

Pastor Lee grew up in South Dakota and graduated from Augsburg College in MInneapolis. After working for a short time as a loan officer, he entered Luther Seminary in St. Paul and graduated in 1983. He has served the Dovray Lutheran Parish, Dovray MN., First Lutheran Church, Renville, MN., and Light of Christ Lutheran, Delano, MN.  Because of his love for parish ministry, he continues to "flunk" retirement and has found great joy in journeying with congregations during times of transition as an interim pastor. His partner, Rev. Dr. Dennis McKee, is a United Church of Christ pastor in Gaylord, MN. They live in Burnsville and are the proud parents of a Bernedoddle puppy by the name of Ivy!
