Pastor Chips Paulson Announces Retirement
When:   January 3, 2022

The following letter from Pastor Chips was mailed to members and friends on October, 25, 2021

Dear Friends,

Twenty-seven years ago we became partners in ministry together, and it has been a cherished journey with you here in the Northwoods. Suzanne and I have decided, however, that it is time to enter a new phase of life. I am turning 65 at the beginning of next year, and I am writing to announce my retirement, effective on January 3rd, 2022. After spending almost half of our lives with you, Suzanne and I feel that it is time to step into a new chapter in our lives, and we prayerfully encourage you as our decision also moves the church into the next season of ministry in the community. We covet your support as we celebrate our years of partnership in ministry and as we entrust one another into God’s hands. In the years to come, Suzanne and I are excited to spend more time with our kids, my mom, and her dad, and enjoy the Northwoods lifestyle. I firmly trust God to provide you with leadership for the future of the church. The Session will be working with the Presbytery of Northern Waters to make that transition as smooth as possible. The future leaders will be so fortunate to have such a gifted, welcoming, energetic, and loving congregation with whom they can serve.

Gratefully and thoughtfully yours in Christ,
