We are saddened to hear of the passing of Rev. Duane Swenson, who served as pastor of Mt Zion (1964-1967) and Reformation Lutheran churches, among others. Rev. Swenson passed away on February 6th and we pray for his wife, Gail, his family, friends, and congregations who mourn his death.
Pastor and Mrs Swenson attended Mt Zion's 75th Anniversary Celebration service here last September. Pictured above is Pastor Swenson after the service with Bishop Paul Erickson, Pastor Tyler, former pastors, and some of the long-time Mt Zion members in attendance. Pastor Swenson is in the center of the front row.
Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and may light perpetual shine upon him.”
