Thank You Letter From Karen
I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus.... 1st Corinthians 1:4
Dear Friends and Members of Joy Lutheran Church,
Thank you so much for the fun and surprising “Send-Off” last Sunday after worship! I was so surprised and touched by the beautiful Quilt that was made and given to me. Not only is it beautiful, but it holds the names and messages from so many of you that will stay with me over the years ahead. Thank you! In addition, the donuts and many other remembrances were fun and appreciated!
Most of all, thank you for your prayers and support of not only me but your Church. You are the people of God at Joy Lutheran . You are important to each other and this community. You have been given worth and a call to mission by our Lord. Heed and enjoy that call!
The following was my Ordination scripture. It seems fitting to share as I retire.
“You shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12
