Grace and peace to you in Jesus’s name!
It was a joy today to welcome Sherri Lawrence into the role of Vicar at St. James. A daughter of the congregation, Sherri is an approved candidate to be an ordained pastor in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Finished with seminary and internship, she now waits for assignment and to enter a Call Process. This will take some time and has produced an opportunity for St. James. In the same manner as we did a few years ago with Vicar Andrew Lewis, we welcome Vicar Sherri onto our church staff. Vicar Sherri brings rich gifts to work with worship planning, youth, and confirmation ministry.
Although I’m looking forward to the extra help, I am really excited about the chance to work with Vicar Sherri. Please join me in welcoming her back into a role of leadership within the St. James Community.
Come tomorrow evening for the Fall Ministry Planning night or on Wednesday for Campfire Communion (with Animal Blessing) and welcome back Vicar Sherri.
As always, I look forward to seeing you in worship - whether on Wednesday night or Sunday morning.
In Christ’s Light,
