Letter of Acceptance from Joshua Ulm

 

Dear Members of Ascension Lutheran Church

 

With joy in my heart and the conviction that God has called me to His service in your midst, I herewith announce my acceptance of the Call which you have extended to me to serve as your pastor.

 

I look forward to my installation as your pastor.  As you await my arrival, please uphold me and my family with your prayers.  This truly is one of the most exciting times of our lives, and we appreciate your love and support.

 

May the Lord who gifts His church prepare us for His work of service that the body of Christ may be built up in faith and knowledge, and may grow together in such love and truth that we may welcome Him with joy at His coming.  Martin Luther said that there is no greater title in the world than “Creature of God”. I look forward to living together with you as God’s creatures; receiving forgiveness, life, salvation, and all that we have from the hand of our gracious God.

 

In Christ, the strong Word of God,

 

Joshua Ulm
