With much anticipation, several committees at Saint Peter pulled out the stops for Pastor Wade Brinkopf’s installation ceremony on June 25, 2023. The church began the day with a Unity service so all members could enjoy the event as one body.
The service was presided over by Reverend Jonathan Conrad, chair of the Synod’s Campus Ministry Team and Senior Pastor of Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wilmington. Our Church President, J. Taylor Ryan, issued the formal invitation to serve Saint Peter Lutheran Church in the capacity of Associate Pastor. Pastor Jason Huebner and the congregation then joined in, pledging their support to Pastor Wade.
The ceremony was followed by a reception with tents and outdoor seating planned by Dan Sees and prepared by the members of the Property Committee, and a fabulous menu developed by Ann Larson and prepared by the members of the Fellowship Committee. After starting everyone off with shrimp cocktail, members selected from a buffet menu of pulled pork, chicken salad, Waldorf salad, and salmon followed by cupcakes topped with white chocolate decorations. Everyone received keepsakes featuring Pastor Wade’s favorite Bible verse, Romans 8:32.
