At its congregational meeting on Sunday, July 9th, the disciples of Augsburg voted overwhelmingly to call Pastor Paul Wollner as our next Senior Pastor.
The votes were 216 YES – 3 NO, plus 3 blank ballots. Pastor Paul has joyously and humbly accepted the call. The compensation & benefits motion passed by a similar margin, with one extra YES vote having been cast by a late arrival — 217 YES – 3 NO, plus 3 blank ballots.
Pastor Paul, his wife, Katherine, and their 4 boys plan to relocate to the Winston-Salem area in mid-August, and Pastor Paul’s first Sunday with us will be September 3rd. Pastor Trexler will stay with us at least through September 15. Check your e-mail, your worship bulletins, and your Beacon over the next several weeks for more information about plans for welcoming the Wollners.
