Pastoral Update

Subject: Interim Pastor update

To: All Shepherd of the Glades Lutheran Church members & friends,

Sunday June 23rd, 2019 will be the final day of service to SOTG provided by Pastor Bob Hoffman. As interim Pastor, Bob ( and his lovely wife Colleen ) have become a special part of our church family, and we are all grateful. During the month of June please join me in thanking Pastor Bob for his ministry at SOTG.

Pastor Jeffrey Ungs, our new full time pastor, will begin at SOTG on August 1st, 2019. During the month of July, before Pastor Jeff arrives, the Synod and Connie Schmucker, Assistant to the Bishop, have arranged for Pastor Frank Lee of Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Naples, FL, to provide pulpit services for SOTG. Thank you, Pastor Lee.

Due to the unexpected recent death of Rev. Bill Bogholtz at Christ Lutheran Church, Cape Coral, FL, the Synod requested that SOTG release Pastor Bob early, effective July 1st, 2019, so that Pastor Bob can begin his new interim call in Cape Coral.

Thank you and God bless,

Lawrence Buettner, Council President
