Greetings to my brothers and sisters in Christ in the Wisconsin Rapids Moravian Church!
I am so grateful for the opportunity to walk with you in this time of transition and I look forward to meeting each one of you after I arrive in June. In addition to worship leadership and spiritual support of members, I hope to help keep the boards and committees moving forward on projects and programs that have developed through your discernment process. It is important that you continue to build the identity for mission that has been evolving among you. Perhaps most important is my desire to be a continual reminder of God’s action through this congregation—something that is more and more apparent to me as I learn more about you.
Since I am only ¾ time, I generally will only be in the office on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, particularly in the mornings, leaving time for visiting and meetings later in the day. This certainly could change as I learn more about the congregation and further discuss my role with the Joint Board.
I encourage all of you to maintain daily prayer for this congregation during this time of transition. May we continue to seek God’s will in all that we do, and have the courage to follow.
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
