Pastor Bruening's Message
Dear Members and Friends of St.
When I came to St. John’s, I came as the Intentional Interim Pastor,
which meant I came “intentionally” with certain goals or - an
agenda. That agenda included:
1. Bringing St. John’s to a stable financial situation. The past two
years’ income for budgeted items has exceeded our expenses for those
budgeted items and this year, while we may have deficit, it should
be relatively small.
2. Helping the congregation deal with considerable anxiety and
division. At the last Voter’s Assembly I was happy to see a good
spirit and trust that it will continue.
As I have done in the previous churches where I have served as
Intentional Interim Pastor, once I completed that stated agenda, it
was time to move on and take a new challenge.
I have really enjoyed being with the people of St. John’s and the
support that they have offered me. However, it is time to leave and
have therefore decided that my last day at St. John’s will be the
School Graduation on June 8th.
I have met with several congregational leaders to discuss the next
steps. The Worship Board and I have put together a plan for Worship
Services. We have arranged to have quality Pastors come in as guest
preachers through the end of July for the Sundays when we have Holy
Communion; On non-Communion Sundays, Mark Stapleton will be
preaching and in accordance with our District President’s approval,
I or another Pastor will be checking over his sermons before he
preaches them. I will be meeting with people from the Board of
Parish Education to discuss a plan for ongoing adult Bible Study;
and the Call Committee is proceeding with some good names so that we
will hopefully have a qualified candidate to present to the
I am confident of the love you have for our Lord and for one another
and even more of the love the Lord has for you. You will always
remain in my heart and in my prayers. Now remain in Christ, knowing
that He will remain in you.
