I have accepted a call as pastor of a congregation in New Jersey and will be leaving the area around the third week of March. I must therefore resign my board position as member-at-large, and ending my participation in TAC.
My father and sister have experienced a number of medical issues over the past year and a half, and I have made several trips during that time to New Jersey to help out as I could. Gary and I prayerfully considered our options and decided that our relocating to New Jersey was in the best interest of my family.
My last Sunday at First Lutheran will be March 22, and last day with the Pacific County Youth Programs-ESD113 will be March 12. I am leaving notes for my successors with information on TAC's monthly meeting.
It has been my pleasure to be a part of TAC, supporting the youth of our community. I wish all of you the best as you continue to do so.
Laurie A. Johnson, Pastor First Lutheran Church South Bend, Wash.
