The Church Council is happy to announce that Pastor William Weidenbach, Jr. will serve as our interim Pastor. Pastor William studied at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. He has served parishes in Florida, North Dakota, Minnesota and Illinois. Prior to becoming a pastor, he was a tax accountant. Pastor William and his wife, Linda will be residing in the parsonage. Linda is the chaplain at Pleasant View in Ottawa. We are thankful that God has brought Pastor William to us as we begin the process of searching for a new pastor. He will be serving as our primary preaching pastor, giving leadership to our small group ministry and assisting our staff and Church Council in providing leadership to the congregation. We know you will extend your gracious welcome to Pastor William and Linda as part of our church family and support them with your prayers during this transition time.

Dear Friends in Christ,

Do you consider yourself a disciple of Jesus?  Do you consider yourself a steward?  Being a disciple and steward are two very important facets of our journey of faith as God’s people in Christ.  These two elements of our faith journey help us connect the dots of everyday life and what it means to be followers of Christ as we live daily in the midst of God’s grace in Christ.

Over the next seven weeks, we will be involved with a ministry initiative entitled “Growing as Disciples and Stewards.”  We will explore together the faith/discipleship practices of pray, study, worship, invite, serve, and give.  With this initiative, we will celebrate our ministry together as disciples of Jesus and explore ways we can, as individuals, grow in our understanding and practice as disciples and stewards. 

Our Kick Off weekend for “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” is Saturday/Sunday, October 6, 2018.  We begin our seven - week emphasis with the faith/discipleship practice of PRAY.  Through sermons, Bible Studies, and activities, we will explore what it means to be growing disciples and stewards, connecting the dots between faith, daily life, and our ministry as a congregation.

 “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” Bible Study (for weekly emphasis)

An important component of our conversations of what it means to be a growing disciple and steward, will be a Bible Study each week highlighting the weekly faith/discipleship practice focus.  You are invited to be a part of these studies and conversations of faith and discipleship.  Our “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” Bible Studies will be distributed each week in the bulletin.  Please use them individually, with your family, as part of scheduled ministry meetings or prayer groups.

Plan to be on hand in worship and join a “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” Bible Study.  How exciting it will be, as together, we grow as disciples of Jesus and stewards of God’s rich gift of grace in our Lord Christ.

Growing in faith and discipleship together,

Stewardship Ministry
