Worship and Faith Formation

Message from Deacon Gary

 Dear Friends of the Milton Lutheran Parish,

It has been a great first few weeks as I begin my call to serve this community as your Interim Pastor.

I love getting to know new people and learn about how God is working in the faithful communities all over the world. It has been life giving to hear your individual stories and learn about the amazing ministry you do together. 

God has placed on your hearts certain gifts, passions, and desires. At the same time God has chosen someone that will come to walk alongside you as your permanent Pastor. This person will help you to accomplish your mission, deepen your relationships, and strengthen your connection with God. 

While I know many of you are anxious for that time to come, I am excited for the opportunity to serve you during this season of your faith community. Please know that my ‘door’ is always open at either Christ or Trinity. You are welcome to reach out to me anytime. You can stop by the church office, send me an e-mail or give me a call. I would love to get to know each of you, and be helpful in any way that I can. 

Yours in Christ,      

Gary Schaeffer   

Message from Parish and Combined Councils

 At our September 24 meeting, Parish Council and the Combined Trinity and Christ Lutheran Councils had a lengthy discussion regarding joint worship services.   Pros and cons were presented and Deacon Gary presented information explaining that effective evaluation of a change requires a six-month minimum trial. The result of these discussions was that we will continue to hold combined worship services for a six- month trial beginning in November. Services in October will be joint services at 9:00 AM held at Trinity as previously scheduled. Beginning in November, services will be at 9:30 AM and will rotate location monthly through April. November services will be at Christ. December at Trinity and so on.   

Our intention of this six-month trial period is to receive feedback about the worship schedule we have been using since the formation of the parish. So that after this time, we are better positioned to make a long-term decision on the worship schedule that will best accommodate the needs of our parish and help us to work toward accomplishing our mission. 

We recognize that the changes in the worship times and schedule has been challenging for many of you. It has also been a blessing to our community as we work toward growing together in our relationships. During this six-month trial period, we ask that you remain open. We also plan to hold meetings and provide other opportunities for people to provide feedback on the worship schedule and plans for the future of the Parish.
