Pastor Mark's May Newsletter Message:

 

God‘s beloved people: 

WHEN, oh When will we get our “Permanent pastor”? This is the lament I have heard and every interim setting that I have served. It  is totally understandable, because the process always takes longer, or  at least seem to take longer, than we anticipated or wish!....  especially for settings like MLP that have been in an interim season as  long as Milton Lutheran Parish has. I wish to remind and encourage you about a couple things. 

First  of all respectfully I remind you that there’s no such thing as a  “permanent pastor”.  Other than death and taxes, nothing in life is ever  really “permanent”. Your next Pastor will be with you for a season,  hopefully a long and fruitful one. I do hope and pray that this will be  the case in deed for Milton Lutheran Parish as you anticipate your next  chapter of ministry. 

But in the meantime you already have  a pastor! I remain happy and excited to help you and journey with you,  however I can, for as long as we remain together, help you continue  become the parish God want you to be. 

And ministry still  continues and exciting things can be developed and launched as you await  to this next chapter of ministry. To be active in ministry will make a  very positive impression upon candidates who are discern and consider  partnering with you to help you reach your mission goals. 

I  also lovingly remind you that no time is wasted time here! During this  time you have and are learning so much about yourselves, about each  other, as congregations and as a Parish, and, of course, about God. And  you will continue to learn such, as much as you are open and willing to.  

Also the Synod has no control who, when, and how  candidates are available. That is out of their control. When is in their  control is that they are actively and search for candidates for  you, reviewing profiles as they come to their attention, networking with  other bishops and colleagues To see if candidates in other synods are  available for interview. Your bishop her staff and the Synod office are  your partners in ministry. Embrace them and pray for them as such. 

Yes.....  pray! Prayer is the lifeblood of a congregation, a connection with God,  and especially during a time of transition and interviewing. you have a  very skilled, capable, and strong call committee, who are devoted to  their task and will look out for the very best for Milton Lutheran  parish and her ministry. Uphold them especially in prayer. And please  tell them that you were praying for them. Such encouragement goes a long  way in the work of a call committee. 

Keep on keeping on in prayer, hope, faith, and love! 

In partnership.

About us

Our Pastor

image132

We are blessed to have Pastor Mark Galbraith, Intentional Interim Pastor, serving us as Christ Lutheran and Trinity Lutheran Churches transition and celebrate our new chapter of ministry together as Milton Lutheran Parish.

Our Faith

image133

The center of our life together as a congregation is the experience of God's grace through Jesus Christ.  Through worship, God encounters us in Word and Sacrament, nourishing our faith and giving us power for Christian living. 

Our Involvement

image134

Each Sunday, we are a community "gathered" in the Word, song, prayer, and the Meal to be equipped and "scattered" each week as God's faithful people to work, give, help, and be living examples of God's grace and generosity.
