Rev. Dr. Michael Nirva Called to Glory

"Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise.
You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy!" - Isaiah 26:19a

We grieve the loss of Pastor Michael Nirva, but rejoice that he is with Christ and will be raised on the last day. He passed away suddenly on June 9, 2018 while traveling with his family in Sweden.

He is being cremated in Sweden, and visitation and service details are the following:

July 13, 2018, 4-7 p.m.
Trinity Lutheran Church
Faribault, MN

Celebration of Life
July 14, 2018, 10:30 a.m. at Trinity

The family requests that bright colors are worn (despite wearing black every day, Michael didn't like wearing it all that much, according to his wife, Lisa).

Please continue praying for his wife and their two daughters as they grieve and travel back to the US. Also pray for the people of Trinity and Pastor Paul Rieger as he shepherds them through this time.
