From the Bridge Pastor:

Rev. Del Olivier

My stint with Covid-19 is officially over. Jane did test positive and is near the end of her stint as well. Thank you for your prayers and kind words of concern.
It was so good to lead worship on the 22nd and resume the rest of my duties. 
Next Sunday Todd will be leading worship as I will be supplying at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Rock Valley while the seminarian I am supervising/mentoring takes a much-needed semester break and he gets “out of Dodge” for the long weekend.
On Monday, we pause to remember our loved ones who have died. The office will be closed; therefore, I will not be having office hours. I will be available for emergency calls 712-490-6510.
