Cormorant Church is located on the western edge of 'Lakes County', approximately 40 miles SE of Fargo/Moorhead, or 15 miles SW of Detroit Lakes, or about 10 miles N of Pelican Rapids.
Pastor Gary Van Hunnik leads our two services every Sunday, one traditional service and one contemporary service.
Our traditional service starts at 8:30 AM, where you can hear our Senior Choir every Sunday from Easter through Christmas. In addition to the Senior Choir, you will also have opportunities to hear Voices of Praise, Harmony Hims, and our Bell Choir, as well as many other talented individuals. Voices of Praise is a smaller vocal group, while Harmony Hims is a four man A cappella group. Both of these groups also freely share their talents outside of Cormorant Lutheran.
Our Contemporary service starts at 10:30 AM from September through May. It is led by our Contemporary group, Joyful Noise. In the summer months, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, the Contemporary service moves outside and also starts one half hour earlier at 10:00 AM. These outside services are led by groups from throughout our area. Our outside services are very informal, with a come as you are attitude. Wear casual clothes and don't be afraid to bring your pets along.
Between services there is fellowship for the adults and Sunday school for the Children. Our Wednesdays are spent with confirmation for the youth, as well as choir practice for most of the choir groups. But Wednesdays are not just about singing and Confirmation, every other Wednesday many of our members get together for a morning of quilting. These quilts go to families and individuals in need all over the world. In addition, our graduating High School Seniors each get a quilt to take with them as they head off to College.
Vacation Bible School is usually taught for 3 days sometime during the month of August. It is open for all children, members and non-members, up through grade 6. Many of our members are Grandparents whose grandchildren choose that time to visit just so they can attend our Vacation Bible School.
Cormorant Lutheran is not just about providing a place to worship. It is also about outreach services, meeting our friends and neighbors, and enjoying each other's company. In early May the Women hold a festive Spring Salad Luncheon to help welcome the warmer weather. On the Friday before Memorial Day there is the Pork BBQ to kick off summer. In July you will find us at our famous Church Auction. The proceeds from this go to support global mission projects such as Casa De Fe, Missionary work in Japan, Lutheran World relief, TeacHaiti, and others. Also supported are local missions such as food shelves and the Lakes Crisis and Resource Center. Some of the proceeds also go to support our own projects. Then we close out the summer months with our incredible Garbage Can Party in late August. And if you're a biker, make sure to bring your bike for the Motorcycle run on the same day. You would be hard pressed to find a better way to spend a late summer afternoon than a bike ride with friends followed by a wonderful meal and fellowship.
