Today, after 41 years in the pastoral ministry, 36 of those years here at St. Paul’s in Bangor, I am retiring. Ali and I have no words to match our gratitude for the honor and kindness you have shown us amid the sunshine and shadows, amid the peaks and valleys of all these years.  Your love for us and our family has been a reflection of your love for our Savior who has bound us together in the bundle of eternal life.    May your next pastor be equally blessed.    After today, we will be living at 4063A 117th Street, Chippewa Falls, WI  54729.  In fairness to your new pastor, I can no longer serve as your pastor, but we remain friends always.                                                                    

Yours in Christ,   
Pastor Roy W. Hefti
