Installation service was wonderful. Pastor Hays preaching — on target with passion and truth, along with a little humor. Pastor Stenzel serving as liturgist. Nine pastors and one vicar participating; plus the congregation plus members of sister congregations in the west region of The AALC. Heart-lifting singing with great hymns (“The Church’s One Foundation,” “A Mighty Fortress,” and “Lift High the Cross”) and a wonderful praise medley, finishing with “There is a Redeemer.”
Thanks to everyone for a great night, and the beginning of our walk together as pastor and church. May God bless us in this new adventure.
