Mark your calendars for a month of celebrations in August as First Lutheran Church bids farewell to our interim pastors and a warm hello to Pastor Erin.
Pastor Steve’s Farewell and Godspeed will be July 31 and August 1 at each service. There will be a Sunday morning reception between services to send Pastor Steve off with our blessings. We will have a basket at the reception for cards. If you would like to contribute to a purse for Pastor Steve, please send your donation to the church office by July 24 with a notation that it is for Pastor Steve’s farewell.
Pastor Erin will be installed as Lead Pastor on August 21-22 at each service. We will have a special reception between services on August 22 for her as well. Watch for more information on activities to meet and connect with Pastor Erin and bless her new beginning at First.
Pastor Bill’s last Sunday at First will be August 29. We will have Farewell and Godspeed for him at each of the services on August 28 and 29 and a special reception between services on the 29th. We will have a basket for personal cards at the reception. If you would like to contribute to a purse for Pastor Bill, please send your contribution to the church office by August 21 with a notation that it is for Pastor Bill’s farewell.
How exciting it is to have an entire month of celebration after over a year in the wilderness! Let us praise God and give thanks for God’s unwavering love!
