Some 270 people gathered at the Mountain View United Methodist Church in Cottonwood Sunday for the ordination of Bruce Tyler Lerum as a pastor with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. A former resident of Cottonwood for nearly 30 years and member of the Spirit of Joy Lutheran Church, Lerum will now serve as senior pastor of the St. James Lutheran Church in Jackson, Mich. Included among those at Sunday's ordination were 50 people from the Victory Lutheran Church in Mesa, where Pastor Lerum served his internship.
