Pastor Christopher deForest is elected Bishop

It is with great pleasure that we share with you that this past weekend the Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod elected a new Bishop who will begin his ministry among us on January 1, 2021.  We thank Bishop Samuel Zeiser for his incredibly faithful ministry among us as our bishop for the past 12 years.  We look forward to sharing ministry with Bishop elect Christopher deForest.  See the Biography for Pastor deForest here.

 

May 30, 2020 - "Path to Unity"

Leadership Retreat

On May 30 Leaders of the United Proclamation of the Gospel Parish and St. John's Windish Lutheran Church met to explore the path to uniting our communities of faith. From the UPG side this action was based on the December 2019 vote at Congregation Meetings to enter into a Parish Agreement. Here is an excerpt from the cover letter announcing this vote:

If a "Yes" vote is cast in this process, the voter is sharing her/his desire to continue

in our current arrangement with an understanding that the leadership of the UPG will be guided by the visioning report (dated Feb. 12, 2019). This report expressed a desire, at some point in the future, to create a single congregation.

The people of the United Proclamation of the Gospel Parish voted 133 in favor of moving forward with only 4 opposition votes.
