A TEMPORARY FAREWELL:
As I prepare to move clothing items for all seasons, small office and apartment items to Mankato, MN starting out on Saturday, Apr. 17, I desire to express my appreciation to Parkland Lutheran Church for understanding and granting me a leave of absence through June of 2022. You and your pastors will remain in my daily prayers. It has truly been a joy to have served here in this place the last 33 years. The Tacoma area is considered to be our home even into retirement by Lisa and me. The Lord willing, I will be back occasionally to worship with you within this next year especially during holiday seasons. God continue to keep you in His grace as you gather together around Word and Sacrament in Jesus’ name.
Pastor Glenn Obenberger

ELECTRONIC GIVING:
Parkland Lutheran Church has a convenient way to make your regular offerings. With our electronic giving program, you can easily set up a recurring giving schedule or make one-time contributions. Click here for more information.

  1. This is optional; the old system of contributing by check and cash still works.
  2. Members can still set something up through their banks so that regular checks are mailed in.
  3. If members choose this new option they might wish to consider still using their envelopes and indicate on them that contributions are given electronically (not necessary, but that way a young confirmation student sees regular contributions going into the offering plate.
