The recently installed Bishop Amy Odgren of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America’s (ELCA) Northeastern Minnesota Synod will be a guest preacher at Lord of Life Lutheran Church of Baxter on Sunday, April 18th at 9 a.m.
Odgren, of Walker, Minn., was elected to the office for a six-year term in August 2020. Prior to this, she served as assistant to the bishop and was director for evangelical mission in the Synod. She has been preaching since 2001, when she earned a Master of Divinity Degree from Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa.
During Sunday’s service, Bishop Odgren will give a sermon continuing the focus Lord of Life has had following Easter on the First Epistle of John, which comes from the early years of Christianity.
Please join us in welcoming our new bishop to Lord of Life, and hearing her perspective on this message from the Bible. Sunday’s 9 a.m. service will be both in-person and livestreamed on Lord of Life’s Youtube channel.
