Dear Members of St. Luke UMC,
Let me take this opportunity to thank each of you for allowing me to serve during the past several years as your Pastor of Christian Counseling. It has been both a blessing for me and an important ministry for our church. We have served those in need within our congregation, and we have had many who were seeking pastoral counseling beyond the walls of our church.
Second, let me thank you for the wonderful retirement reception you had for me recently. Your presence, your cards and your gifts were a terrific outpouring of your care which i will always treasure.
In my retirement from the staff, you can continue to expect my ongoing loyalty and service to St. Luke.
Retired Pastor of Christian Counseling
