FROM THE DESIGNATED PASTOR
“I thank my God every time I remember you.” -Philippians 1:3
I have served as your designated pastor and designated visitation pastor, in one form or another, over the last two years. During that time, I was involved in the lives of many of the people at St. Peter’s, and I am thankful for the many ways in which you show the love of God towards each other and towards others in the things that you do.
Even so, St. Peter’s is now ready to enter into a new chapter as you have called a new pastor! I am incredibly excited and happy for you that you have entered into this partnership with Pastor Heimer. I will continue to pray for the continued growth in love and grace as you move into this new chapter.
I wanted to briefly take this opportunity to thank you for inviting me into your hearts and into your homes over these past two years. It was certainly a joy to come back to the church of my high school and college years and to see once again the many faces of people whom I have loved and prayed for.
As St. Paul says to the Philippians, so I say the same to you: I thank my God every time I remember you!
As of my writing of this letter, more news regarding the transition to Pastor Heimer’s start will certainly be forthcoming.
Thank you, once again, for everything!
Thanking God for you,
Pastor Ken Melber, Jr.
