Ending and New Beginning: a season of transition at FGUMC/Christuskirche.

We are in the middle of a season of endings, but what God has for us on the other side maybe more exciting than we ever imagined. 

Pastor Martin, and wife Elsbeth, will be leaving us for a much earned retirement and a new pastor has been selected.

We have used the opportunities to celebrate the good things during Pastor Martin's tenure and to process any pain and sorrow related to his departure. But to be healthy, we also had to make an orderly transition to a future that will be different from the past, but holds the promise of God's best for us with our next pastor.
