 Mindekirken’s Mission Statement:

Mindekirken is called to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people,
empowering service to others.

Mindekirken practices its ministry through 
Norwegian traditions, culture and language.

Call to Prayer
Your Call Committee has carefully crafted informative ads to be published in the four Friday issues of Vårt Land in June, in both electronic and print editions.  The ads describe Mindekirken, our Minnesota setting, our challenges and needs based on the self-study in which many of you have expressed yourselves. This is a Call to Prayer at this crucial time when pastors in Norway will be reading about our search for our flock’s next shepherd.  We have done what we can; now we commend this to the hands of God.
Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak to a person of God’s own choosing, pique their interest and move them also to prayer.  Please pray daily, remembering that it is God who calls us to pray, and gives abundant promises to hear with love, with wisdom and with power.  Thank you.
