The 2022 Laestadian Lutheran Church Annual Summer Services will be hosted by the Longview congregation beginning Thursday, June 30th and ending Sunday, July 3rd. Services will be held at the Kelso High School in Kelso, Washington which is located 1 mile from Longview. All service activities will be held at this location including youth activities. 

The motto for these services is from Psalm 9:2 “I will be glad and rejoice in thee.”

We ask for prayers that God would guide the planning of these services and look forward to this event! We extend a warm welcome to all!

On behalf of the Longview Summer Service Planning Committee,

Tyler Hendrickson, Chairman


When I first read the words of the service motto, an image came to mind much like the completed  emblem you see above. The meaning and significance of the elements contained within it became  clearer as the design progressed. 

Psalm 9 begins with David's words: "I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all  thy marvelous works." 

The scene depicted in the service emblem embodies God's "marvelous works" here in the Pacific  Northwest. The mountains, trees, wood, and water, which are so abundant here, are represented in a  stained glass motif.  

Psalm 9:2 contains the motto: "I will be glad and rejoice in thee." The three rays of the sun represent the  Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In his time, David was glad and rejoiced in God, the Father. The  modern, believing family depicted in the service emblem, is rejoicing in God, the Father, Jesus the risen  Son, and the Holy Spirit, three in one. 

The emblem also has twelve sides, which represent the twelve disciples of Christ. The members of the  believing family shown in the emblem are also disciples of Christ today.
