Our Saviour's Lutheran Church in Sunnyside will hold an installation service for its new pastor, Rev. Katrina Walther.
There will be no morning worship service that day, Sunday, Oct. 17. Instead, the installation service will be incorporated into the 1 p.m. worship service.
Bishop Martin Wells of Spokane will preside at the worship service. Pastors from surrounding churches will also participate in the service.
Church officials note that the installation service is a formal way of recognizing God's call to Rev. Walther through Our Saviour's Lutheran Church.
There will be a light supper served after the service to give community residents an opportunity to personally welcome the new pastor.
