New Lutheran minister for Church of St Paul will be formally recognized Mar. 10

A new chapter in pastoral leadership for two valley churches

Reverend Brian Krushel will be formally recognized as the minister for the Church of St Paul and Clearwater United Church congregations on March 10 at the Church of St Paul

A new chapter in the pastoral leadership of Clearwater United Church, and the Church of St Paul, Barriere, will be celebrated on Sunday, March 10.

Reverend Brian Krushel will be formally recognized as the minister of these two congregations, that make up the North Thompson Pastoral Charge.  The service will include the Installation traditions of the Anglicans and Lutherans, and the Covenanting traditions of the United Church, since the Church of St Paul is a Shared Ministry.

Dignitaries from the three denominations who will be participating in the service are Rev. Karen Medland, Chair of Kamloops Okanagan Presbytery of the United Church of Canada, Rev. Rick Schulz, Dean of the Southern Interior Conference of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, and Bishop Barbara Andrews, Bishop of the Anglican Parish of the Central Interior.

This service will be held at 4 p.m., in the Church of St Paul in Barriere.  Everyone is welcome to attend this Installation/Covenanting Service and be a witness to the excitement that these two congregations are experiencing as they move from decades of leadership with United Church ministers to a time of pastoral leadership from Pastor Brian Krushel, a Lutheran.

A potluck dinner will follow.
