The Parish Council and the Call Committee of the Rapidan Lutheran Parish are pleased to announce that The Rev. Christine Olson has accepted an official call to serve God and the Parish as our Pastor.
Pastor Olson comes to us with nearly twenty years of active ministry in both large and small
congregations.  She has served for the last seventeen years at Trinity Lutheran Church in Arden, West Virginia.  
We look forward to Pastor Olson’s first day with us on March 15, 2021.  She will preach and preside at her first services on March 21, 2021. Please check this website for information about whether her first service will be conducted in-person or online. Our Interim Pastor, The Rev. Carl Trost will continue to shepherd us prior to Pastor Olson’s arrival.
 We are called to love God and to love one-another.  For that reason, the two congregations of
the Rapidan Lutheran Parish continue with our efforts to help protect the health of our members and friends.  With the number of COVID-19 infections on the rise, we feel that it is
not safe to gather together in-person.  However, we continue to offer an online worship service every Sunday, available on this website.  
Please continue to check on family, friends and neighbors, and please keep them and the families of those who have died from the virus in your prayers.
Please check this website for updates as we walk together in the name of Jesus Christ.
Grace and Shalom,

Mike Sathe
Parish Council President
2/28/21 2nd Sunday in Lent
