In the next few weeks, First Lutheran in Texarkana, TX, will have you covered coming and going … just like their church sign says:

staygoYours truly leaves FLC after serving as pastor for 5 and 1/2 years.  It is time to “re-position” (not retire!)

Pastor Darren Anderson, from St. Paul, Plano, TX will take over the following Sunday.

As FLC heads toward its 95th year as a church, serving the state line area (Texas & Arkansas), it will prayerfully continue Word and Sacrament ministry to all who walk through its doors.  With a newly installed Director of Christian Education (Kadie Cleveland) and the soon-to-be built Youth & Education addition, along with a new pastor, FLC has a bright future indeed.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve here.  What a blessing!
