Special Announcement from Pastor Lisa – April 19, 2020

After many months of prayer and discernment, I have decided to resign my position as associate pastor at Zion, effective May 16th. My resignation letter is included below and will be mailed to the congregation today. I read my resignation letter in worship on 4/18/21, and I also said the following: 

“I absolutely love Zion. The people of this congregation have been incredibly warm and welcoming to me and my family. Fredericksburg has been a wonderful home for us, and we envisioned ourselves making a home here for many years to come. I had certainly hoped that things would work out differently at Zion, but I trust that God is working through all things. I know that God will hold us in tender care now and in the days to come. So thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity to serve as a pastor here, even if it was just for a short time.”
