Pastor Bruening's Message

June 2017

Dear Members and Friends of St. John’s,

Merci, vielen dank, gracias, ευχαριστώ. How many more ways can I say thank you for your gracious farewell. As soon as we arrived back home last Sunday, we hung over the mantle of our fireplace the beautiful print that you gave us. As you many know, Alice is from northern lower Michigan and the painting is so typical of the scenery around there. As I am cleaning out my files and books, I see things that remind me of projects we have worked on together.

These include setting congregational goals, working to accomplish those goals including establishing the position of Director of Admissions and Marketing for the School. It has been a very pleasant journey because I have felt supported in these things.

Next for me is to work on some delayed home projects and then hopefully find a position at another Church. For you it is life with a new Pastor. As I said in my last sermon, St. John’s is at a crossroads as you have just Called a new Pastor. If he accepts the Call, I think you will find Pastor Roberts is a Pastor with a heart for outreach with new ideas on how to touch the lives of people in the community.

You will also be blessed to have a transition time with Pastor John Prohl coming in as the Oversight Pastor and as many of you remember when he was Associate Pastor at St. John’s, he has a heart for the people here.

I have asked Michelle to keep me on your mailing list so that I can see what is happening here and will read that with interest. You will remain in my prayers as you move forward. God bless all of you.

Pastor Phil
