Dear Elected Leaders, Ambassadors, and Congregants of The Rock Lutheran Church,
Over these past 13 years, I have been honored and humbled to be a servant of the Word among you! We’ve experienced many “first” things in our time together…things to celebrate, mourn, learn, suffer, and grow. With God’s help, we’ve grown into a large congregation that is GRACE DRIVEN, CONNECTING PEOPLE, ON MISSION.
God has worked through The Rock in an extraordinary way — in shaping and molding me into the person, husband, father and pastor that I am today. For all of this, I AM ETERNALLY GRATEFUL TO YOU!!!
Now, God has made it clear that it’s time for me to GO to a different mission field….serving Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Rogers, AR. While our mission fields may be different, we each have a role to fill and a game plan to execute in connecting people to Jesus in various ways. The “Forever Family” of The Rock will always be close to my heart and I intend to take along its best practices in ministry as I begin in NW Arkansas.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 has always been a ‘theme’ passage for my family, and I want to share it with you today. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
We’re confident those words of God will be true for The Rock, for Holy Trinity, and for us as we seek Him together with all our hearts…being GRACE-DRIVEN, CONNECTING PEOPLE, ON MISSION!
Forever family in Jesus,
Michael J Meyer, Pastor
