CALL EXTENDED – A Divine Call has been extended to Mrs. Trisha Engelbrecht to serve as teacher of grades 1-2 in our St. Paul’s School starting in the 2020-2021 school year. Mrs. Engelbrecht currently teaches at St. John’s in Caledonia, MN. Her husband, Mr, Jon Engelbrecht, serves as the Dean of Students and teacher of Old Testament at Luther High School. Mr. & Mrs. Engelbrecht and daughter, Halley – a student at MLC, are all members of our own congregation and live in Rockland. May the Holy Spirit be with her as she prayerfully weighs the Call she currently has at St. John’s, Caledonia and the Call she has now received from St. Paul’s, Bangor.
