Craig’s Public Schedule

Bishop Satterlee endeavors to visit congregations regularly, just as pastors seek to visit congregants on a regular basis. Bishop Satterlee concentrates on congregations that invite him, congregations celebrating significant events, and those where there is a need. The bishop is happy to schedule special worship services during the week, and finds  these to be very meaningful times. They frequently include time for a meal, fellowship, and conversation that Sunday morning cannot. The bishop does his best to accept invitations to preach and/or preside, especially when there is a sacramental need due to vacation or vacancy. You may schedule a visit by calling the Lansing Office (517-321-5066 or e-mailing Bishop Satterlee at bishopcraigsatterlee@mittensynod.org.
