November 2020 Annual Meeting

As we continue to navigate these uncertain times surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Augsburg continues to actively function in continuingly creative ways, both technologically and otherwise. Worship and ministry are taking different forms in the short term as we all are eager to stay engaged with the community of faith. Similarly the business of the church continues to operate and this November, the Congregational Council has decided to move forward with pragmatic approach to still effectively carry out the annual meeting this November in preparation for 2021. However, this year we'll move forward in a manner that allows us to still decide upon the actionable items while being cognizant of the safety and health of the entire congregation. Fortunately this translates to providing the opportunity to communicate the annual meeting information more broadly too, even though we will adjust by refraining from gathering in the sanctuary for the meeting itself.

When: November 8th, 2020 @ 9.00a.

Purpose: Approval of the actionable items, including 2021 Budget & 2021 Nominating Slate

What to expect:

Information will be prepared for distribution by mail, expect in your mailbox the 1st week of November. As always, do not hesitate to contact the church office if you do not receive the information.

A printed copy will also be available if desired on that 2nd Sunday, which also coincides with communion distribution @ 9.00a. This will be the opportunity for congregational consent (approval or objection), as well as any questions that may arise from the information. If you are unable to make it, please take the brief time to communicate back to church office on or before. Unanimous or general consent assumed if no objection received.

Our Mission


Our mission is to believe God's saving Gospel and share His gifts of love and grace as we nurture our members in His Word and reach out to all people to bring them to faith in Christ.



Augsburg Pre-Kindergarten was founded in 1964 by Margaret Larson. She was a respected educator, a strong proponant of early childhood education, and an active participant in church and community affairs. Today Augsburg Pre-Kindergarten has developed into a program that aspires to have a program that balances self-expression and creativity with instruction suited to the pre-kindergarten age. We strive to foster the child's growing maturity, the ability to care for him or her and the materials we use, along with helping the child become aware of the world we live by using many materials and through social learning experiences.
