“NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD…” with me for the privilege I have had of pastoring Emmanuel Mennonite Church for nearly sixteen years. But as we serve at the will of God, I am following the call of God and of Zion Mennonite Church in Hubbard, Oregon, to continue the privilege of pastoring there, beginning in mid-January, 2014. My duties with EMC will terminate on Sunday, December 15, including that of writing on this blog. Some time in early 2014, an interim pastor or pastors will begin serving EMC while a search process takes place for long-term pastoral leadership. Please keep checking in for updates on that process, and to enjoy the contributions of EMC’s future servant leaders. Your prayers and support for EMC, Zion Church, and myself during this time are much appreciated.
