 Tom Sletto – Director of Music Ministries Minimize

Tom Sletto will be our new Director of Music Ministries, serving the congregation by leading and/or supporting all vocal choirs, bell choirs and the praise team on September 1st.  He is the Assistant Professor of Music Education at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.

Tom received his B.A. in Music Education from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and completed the Master of Arts in Music Education from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.

At the age fourteen, Tom began leading worship in a small country church by playing a small Hammond organ as well as leading from the piano. Since that time he has continued his music ministry by serving as the Director of Music Ministries at Trinity Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes, MN, First United Methodist Church in Anderson, Indiana, and Faith Lutheran Church in Clive.

His wife is working as the Assistant Conductor of the Des Moines, IA Children’s Choir and they have four adult children.  Tom feels a deep calling to always be a part of the music ministry in a church. Since his musical abilities were a gift of God, he has always felt the need to serve in any capacity that God has called him into. Worship and fellowship have always been a part of his life since a child.

Please help us welcome Tom and his family to our church on Sunday, September 7th between services.

Open Conversation About Atheism Held at Lifetree Café

An open conversation about atheism will take place at Lifetree Café on Sunday at 10:00 A.M. and Thursday at 7:00 P.M.

The program, titled “What Your Atheist Friend Wants You to Know: The Conversation No One Is Having,” includes a film featuring atheists’ honest insights about their beliefs and their experiences with people of faith.

“There’s a misconception that atheists aren’t as moral as people of faith,” says atheist Steve Graham. “But we can be just as moral. I have a complete and fulfilled life without faith. I don’t feel there’s anything missing from my life.”

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversations about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting. Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Paige Chapman at 279-0826 or pchapman@wdmumc.org.
