Should Saint James Join The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod?
THIS IS NOT A VOTE. No decision will be made by anyone, based on this survey. The Elders simply ask you to express your current opinion. During the month of May, we hope to get a clearer picture of what the congregation is thinking.
President Nadasdy graciously came and answered our questions on Sunday March 26. If you were not able to be there, you can watch the meeting on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jo1j_34GZlw
Now that we have had some time to think about it and pray about it and talk to each other about it, please choose the response that comes closest to how you are feeling right now.
____ A. Yes, I think we should join The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod
____ B. No, I do not think we should join The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. We should stay independent.
____ C. Now is not the right time for us to join The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, but maybe someday in the future.
____ D. I don’t know. I would like to learn more about The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod before making a decision.
____ E. I don’t know. I would like to hear about other groups that we might consider joining.
____ F. I don’t know. Before we join any other group, we need to study what Scripture says about the roles of women in the church and who should receive the Lord’s Supper together.
You may put your written response in the box on the Welcome Center when you come to church, or respond by email to [email protected] or call the church office at 651 457 9232. The Elders ask you to respond only once, and to get your response in by May 28. Thank you very much.
