Below is Pastor Groth’s call acceptance letter.
Brothers and Sisters of St. Paul’s,
It’s a humbling experience to deliberate a call to serve our Lord as a pastor in his kingdom. I thank you for your prayers and the input you’ve given me throughout this process.
After careful and prayerful deliberation, I have decided to accept the call to serve as pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Bangor, WI. I thank the Lord for his guidance throughout these last few weeks, and I know he will bless this decision both for St. Paul’s and for St. Mark’s in Citrus Heights.
Please keep my family and me in your prayers as we prepare to move and serve the Lord in Bangor. Please also keep our brothers and sisters at St. Mark’s in your prayers as the Lord continues to bless them in their gospel ministry in and around Citrus Heights.
To God be the glory now and always.
In Christ our Savior,
Pastor Brock Groth
