Dear members of Two Steeples,
When I came to our South-Central Synod of Wisconsin 10 years ago, I made myself available to help in congregations wherever my gifts and skills would be helpful within the Synod. They called on me in February of 2018 when Pastor Jeff left, and I responded to that call and began serving you here at Two Steeples in March 2018. As you now know, they have made a similar request again at this time to serve another congregation to which I am responding.
I have loved being with you here at Two Steeples. You love your churches, your loyalty shows in many, many ways. While I have wished for a more public showing of that love and loyalty (meaning worship attendance and financial support), I have never doubted its existence. I have enjoyed the times we have worshiped, planned, and shared fellowship with each other. Thank you for all the gifts and good wishes you have shared with me. If we have not had an opportunity to say goodbye directly, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you for allowing me to be here with you for the past 11 months. As your communities continue to grow, I pray for God’s blessings to be with you helping your congregations become a significant part of that growth process.
