Faith Formation Network:
A February Opportunity
Dr. Andy Root to Speak on
"The Church in a Secular Age"

February 9 at St. Luke's in Goodhue
*Please RSVP if you plan to attend
On February 9th, St. Luke Lutheran in Goodhue will host the monthly Cannon River Conference meeting. On this date, Dr. Andy Root from Luther Seminary will provide a lecture entitled "The Church in a Secular Age."

Congregational life isn't easy in our time. Institutions are weaker, budgets are in decline, people are uninterested, and commitment is wavering. But these are only symptoms of a bigger issue. This presentation will seek to peer beneath the symptoms and explore why many congregations find themselves in an identity crisis. The presentation examines what living in a secular age does to congregational identity and how pastors and lay leaders can find new footing within it.

St. Luke would like to welcome rostered leaders and faith formation ministers to enjoy fellowship and learning if you're available! The gathering will start at 9:30-10 am for coffee, treats, and fellowship, enjoy a short worship service from 10-10:45, and Dr. Root will speak from 11-Noon. Afterward, for those who wish, you are invited to a local eatery to enjoy further fellowship. 

For the purpose of planning treats & coffee, please RSVP to Pr. Eric Hanson ( if you plan on coming.
