Welcome interim Pastor Steve Molin!

I want to begin my ministry among you by telling you how pleased I am to serve as the interim pastor of Beaver Lake Lutheran Church. Your warm welcome of me is a concrete indicator of the DNA of this church; you are a church of hospitality.

  • You welcome visitors with a warm greeting, a shared bulletin, and an invitation to refreshments after worship.
  • You welcome three other congregations to share this beautiful space God has gifted to you, and to call it “home.”
  • You welcome people of every stripe, every color, every background and every socio-political persuasion – a rare quality today, yet one that is needed now more than ever.
  • And you welcome this seasoned pastor to join you in the dance as you ponder whom to call as your next settled pastor.

So…if you are a visitor to our website, perhaps what I have just written is exactly what you need to hear before you consider joining us for worship. You are welcome here, whoever you are, whatever you are, and wherever you’ve been; you come!

And then, just a bit about me. I grew up in Roseville Minnesota last millennium! I’ve been a Lutheran pastor for 37 years, and before that, I was an area director with Young Life. I’ve served congregations in South Dakota, Oregon and Minnesota, and for the past five years, I done interim ministry in churches that were “between pastors”, and this has been some of my most gratifying ministry.

Marsha (a retired elementary school teacher) and I have been married for nearly half a century, and have two kids, five grandkids and the gray hair to prove it! I enjoy reading, watching sports, writing, and tinkering in the garage. Full disclosure: in junior high I was caught shoplifting with the actor who played MacGuyver on TV. And I once played hockey against Wayne Gretzky. I have failed at retirement twice, because there is nothing I would rather be than a pastor.

So...whether you a member of this church, or that church, or no church, I would invite you be a part of our worshipping family on Sunday mornings at 10 AM. I would welcome your questions or concerns, and would love to share conversation at a coffee shop near you.

Yours for now,

Steve Molin
