On Monday, February 8, Lakewood Lutheran Church extended regular divine calls to Rev. Jesse Jacobsen and Mrs. Erica Jacobsen to serve as pastor and teacher, respectively. Pastor Jacobsen is currently serving Lakewood in a vacancy capacity, and Mrs. Jacobsen is currently serving a 1-year call to teach in the first and second-grade classroom. The extension of a call means that they now have an opportunity to prayerfully consider whether it is the best way in which to serve God and all of the people involved. If they accept these calls, they will be installed into their respective positions on a permanent basis. This would also make their move from The Dalles, Oregon permanent.
