St. John’s Family!
The time has come for us to celebrate
Pastor Dave and his many years
of faithful ministry!
Pastor Dave is retiring at the end of the month. His last sermon will be the last weekend of April (Saturday, April 27, Sunday, April 28, and Wednesday, May 1).
Pastor Dave will be greeting people as they come into and leave church that weekend. We will also have a gift table and card box located in the Gathering Space for you to drop off gifts for Pastor Dave and Jane.
In addition, St. John’s is invited to a retirement celebration and dinner on Saturday, May 11.
The celebrations will take place from 4:00pm-7:00pm in the Lower Level of St. John’s. This will include a time of fellowship and socializing (4:00-5:00), a meal (5:00-6:00), and a special program to honor the Lord’s work in and through Pastor Dave’s life (6:00-7:00).
If you wish to attend this event, please RSVP here or by calling the church office (262-334-4901). Again, seating is limited, so please RSVP by May 5.
Whether you choose to greet Pastor Dave and leave a card or gift the weekend of April 28 or to attend the dinner on May 11, would you please consider writing Pastor Dave and Jane a note of appreciation and encouragement? St. John’s would like to present them with a “book” full of letters of thanks and appreciation, special memories from life and ministry, and words of encouragement and prayers from the people who love them.
If you are able to write a letter, it can be handwritten or printed on 8.5×11 stationary or copy paper. You can drop the letter off at the church office, scan and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail it to the attention of Rachel Morton at St. John’s (809 S. 6 th Avenue, West Bend, WI 5309).
