What an incredible time of transition for Gloria Dei! I first want to say how grateful I am for Pastor Karna and Pastor Charles. We have been blessed to have Karna stay with us for the past 12 years, and I am so happy she has been called to this wonderful new opportunity in Stillwater. Charles’s wise and steady leadership has meant to so much to make Gloria Dei the vibrant community that it is, and I am thankful for him and all he has done for our church.
There is much to celebrate about the strong faith community we have. Although times of transition can come with some uncertainty, our church is strong, and we can be confident that the Holy Spirit will be at work as we discern the next steps. We have an opportunity to invite new leaders who share our vision and can help us thrive in the coming season. Please pray for wisdom for the Council and for the call committees in the coming months. We are looking forward to the next chapter together.
