          The Call Committee has posted our Senior Pastor position on the “Lutheran Congregations for Christ” website.  Any LCMC pastor may submit a resume, or, contact the Call Committee for more information.  Resumes will be reviewed as received, and the committee will arrange to interview those candidates who they believe might be qualified to serve our congregation.  If any member of the congregation knows of a pastor who might be interested in this position, you are encouraged to tell that pastor to check the website posting (www.lcmc.net,  ‘Church Life’ tab, ‘Church Staffing’ column, and then click on ‘Open Positions’).  Lutheran pastors who are not now in the LCMC may also apply, but before being called to St. Paul’s they would have to go through the LCMC certification process.  Please continue to remember the Call Committee in your prayers.

          Congratulations to our interim visitation pastor Karis Hagen on receiving a call to be the pastor of St. Peter Lutheran Church in Red Cross, Pennsylvania (founded in 1774!).   Karis is the daughter of World Mission Prayer League missionaries in Nepal, and has been serving in our congregation since June of 2017.  Karis is a graduate of Luther Seminary.  She will be ordained January 21, 2018 at her home congregation, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Minneapolis.  May God bless you, Karis, in as you begin your ordained ministry.

          I will resume my Wednesday morning Bible Study on January 17th (9:30 a.m. in the Mary Room).  We just completed reading Philippians together, and next we will study I Peter.  Christians are being severely persecuted in many areas of the world today.  I Peter was written in the context of the Roman persecution of the First Century Christians. 

May God be with you and bless you in the New Year!

Pastor Leon
