On Sunday, April 7th, I announced to the congregation that I have accepted a Letter of Call from New Creation Lutheran Church in Perham, MN. After much prayer, discernment and conversations with many at Faith, I sensed that it is time for me to begin this new ministry venture. With a thankful and grateful heart, I will conclude 16 years of ministry at Faith on May 19, 2013.
Appropriately, May 19 is Pentecost Sunday, “the birthday of the Church,” which promises the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to drive forward the ministry of Faith and New Creation alike. Thank you for the many kind words, prayers and encouragement you have given in these days.
