IN MEMORIUM: BISHOP STANLEY E. OLSON
Bishop Stanley E. Olson was a former bishop of the Pacific Southwest Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, one of the predecessors of the ELCA. He passed away in Sacramento, CA on July 2, 2014. He was commited to social justice within the church, supporting the civil rights movement in the 1960's and pushing for the inclusion of the LGBT community in the life of the Lutheran church.
"His life and ministry serve as a bright beacon and example for the rest of us." -Audrey Thonvold, ReconcilingWorks Interim Executive Director. Read more here from ReconcilingWorks.
At the request of the family, donations in his memory can be made to the Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer, Sacramento; ReconcilingWorks; or the ELCA Foundation.

Pastor brenda k. bos called to lead
christ lutheran church
Your Church Council joyfully announces that, at the June 22, 2014 Congregation Meeting attended by Bishop Murray Finck and 42 members (including 5 nonvoting but much valued associate members), Pastor Brenda was called as CLC's next permanent pastor by a resounding margin (94%, when only a 2/3 vote is required). She will join us on July 1 and conduct her first worship services as our pastor on July 6. She will be ordained as a first-call pastor in the coming weeks, probably at her home church in North Hollywood, and installed here shortly thereafter. We pray God's blessings on her and our congregation as this next chapter begins for Christ Lutheran. Thank you to those who attended the Congregation Meeting and others who could not be there, but were praying for us all on that day. Thanks be to God.
Please enjoy meeting and greeting Pastor Brenda at coffee times at both services on July 6. We'll have a great celebration on installation day (watch for more info in bulletins, on the church website and through email).
Christ Lutheran is a vibrant, spirit-filled community of old and young, who worship together, learn together, serve together, pray together and play together as we seek to follow Jesus in our daily lives. We are excited about what God is doing in this place and we’d love for you to join us in this adventure.
