At the AGM on March  8th we decided to spend a lot of money on new windows for the church, new chairs (or at least cushions but likely a combination thereof) for the hall, and several projects at the parsonage. Here you can meet the new Board, and you can read Pastor Birgitte's report and the president's report.

Our Youth Choir Our Youth Choir will travel to Denmark in July & August of 2015. We will give concerts in Ørnhøj Church, Bredballe Church, Sct. Maria Hospice Center near Vejle, and a nursing home we do not know the name of yet. Moreover, we will meet with Danish choirs and spend a week with Cirkus Flik Flak in Odense.
To travel we need money, so we ask for your donations (eller et gavebidrag). We also run a bottle drive: please bring your refundable bottles to church on English Sundays. And we will sell King Cone ice cream at every major event at church, so bring a sweet tooth.
Thank you!

Pastor Saltorp Welcome

Hello—and welcome to the Danish Lutheran Church! I’m the pastor of this congregation and together with all the people who volunteer to keep this church going I would like to invite you to get to know us.

We started out as an immigrant church almost 70 years ago, and now we are a church with Scandinavian roots in a Canadian setting. We still speak Danish at some of our services and functions, but as many of our members don’t speak Danish, most functions are in English.

You may wonder what’s so specific about the Danish heritage in respect to being Christian. Mostly, it is a matter of traditions and the way we do things at the service and the social functions. But also, the theology has a special angle, mostly because of some particular church reformists and hymn writers we have had during the Danish church history. Newcomers to our church may find that our rituals and traditions are close to the original reformatory roots, but they also have a Viking ring to them!

We invite you to drop by our church and experience our beautiful church room and take part in our worship and fellowship. Check the calendar of services right here on our home page.

Birgitte Saltorp, Pastor.
