Hear Pastor Peter's New Message To The Congregation

 

June 26, 2018

Where are we at, and how did we get here?

In January of 2018, Pastor Peter began to meet with a mutual ministry team, with the team’s goal being the support and encouragement of Peter in his ministry. Current and past council presidents were a part of this team which met with him multiple times over a period of several months this winter and spring. This winter and spring, Pastor Peter entered into deeper conversation with Bishop Rick Hoyme and the NW Synod of Wisconsin staff for support and discernment about his leadership role at Trinity. In late spring, he brought the Associate Pastors of Trinity into these discerning conversations.

After this period of discernment, Pastor Peter presented a letter of resignation to Executive and Council leadership the week of June 12, and the resignation was accepted. The following congregational letter went out to all Trinity members on June 13: Congregation Letter

June 24 was Pastor Peter’s last Sunday leading worship, and he was the preaching pastor. His sermon is available here: Sermon "Someone Looking Out For You". On that Sunday, we gave thanks for Pastor Peter’s service and for sharing his talents with Trinity over the last two years and lifted both he and his family in prayer. A reception was held for him in the Trinity Room following both worship services.

Currently, Trinity Council is working with the Synod office to appoint an Interim Lead Pastor. In the meantime, council leadership has worked with our Associate Pastors to ensure ministry coverage for the immediate future.

The Trinity Council invites you to forums after worship services on July 15 and August 5 at which they will update the congregation on the process and invite conversation and questions. Please look for regular updates on this page, in the weekly worship announcement page, on Facebook, and in Trinity’s newsletter.
