New Role for Pastor Unger!
September 21, 2020
Now that Pastor
Niemeier has been installed as Messiah’s pastor we’d like to take a moment to
thank Pastor Unger and Linda Unger for their hard work
during this interim period. Messiah has been blessed to have them join us
during our search for a new pastor. Since starting as Messiah’s Interim
Pastor in October 2018, Pastor Unger has shepherded our congregation
with love through God’s word while respecting our history. On behalf of
the congregation, we would like to thank Pastor Unger and Linda for
their dedication, support and love.
AND THERE’S MORE
Lutheran Council in discussion with Bishop Lecakes asked
Pastor Unger if he would continue to serve the congregation in the
role of Associate Pastor. He has graciously accepted. As Associate Pastor
he will be a mentor and advisor; continue to participate in worship services
and the life of the congregation. We will see him at the Eucharist and preaching.
Pastor Unger and Pastor Neimeier have already formed a strong bond
and will continue to work together, in collaboration with the congregation, in
leading Messiah to continue to grow through God’s love. This team ministry
allows us to continue to support our people within our walls even as we seek to
share the Gospel with those around us.
