To the Saints at Village,
The Rev. Dr. Tyler Arnold has ACCEPTED the Divine Call to become the next pastor of Village Lutheran Church. He will continue to serve his current congregation, Christ Lutheran in Platte Woods, Mo., through Easter, then take a few weeks off.
We have tentatively set the afternoon of Sunday, May 15 for his installation as our new pastor. Until then, the Rev. Dr. Joel Biermann will continue to serve as our Vacancy Pastor.
Pastor Arnold and his wife, Andrea, plan to live in our Parsonage as soon as renovations are completed. We will be working with them to find and provide temporary housing while the renovations are underway.
While the credit for this blessed news belongs solely to the Holy Spirit, who walked with us and guided us through the entire call process, please thank the members of our Call Committee: Gale Beanblossom, Matt Egger, Kurt Haldeman, Elsa Mort, Tiffany Silverberg, and Todd Werk for their time, hard work, and faithfulness these past seven months.
Also, please keep Christ Lutheran in your prayers as its congregation addresses its upcoming vacancy and call.
All Praise, Honor, and Glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Chair of Village Lutheran Call Committee
