Dear Family of St. John’s,
“THANK YOU” for the warm wishes, friendly embraces, notes of encouragement, and gifts this past Sunday celebrating my years of serving Christ here at St. John’s. A special “Thank You” to the St. John’s West Bend Foundation for hosting the gathering. When Leah and I were talking on the way home from the gathering, we both commented on how fast time has gone by, and yet, how much the Lord has accomplished at St. John’s.
As was shared before, the Toerpe Family is not moving, nor are we changing congregations. My new role with the LCMS Foundation allows us to stay right here and will allow me to continue to serve all of you, specifically in the area of Charitable Gift Planning.
Again, a heartfelt “thank you” to all of you, and we will see you in worship this weekend!
In His Service,
CraigToerpe and Family
