Tim Zimmerman & The Kings Brass
Coming Back To St. Matthew
Save the Date... Tim Zimmerman & The Kings Brass will be at St. Matthew on Thursday, June 27 at 7:00pm.
Pastor Blonski - has received a Divine Call from St. Matthew Lutheran Church in North Tonowanda, New York. This is a rare event where a pastor actually has two calls. Pastor Blonski has a call to serve us here as Associate Pastor at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, School & Early Childhood Center, as well as a second call to serve as Senior Pastor of St. Matthew Lutheran Church in North Tonowanda, New York. What has happened is that the Holy Spirit has led St. Matthew Lutheran Church in North Tonowanda, New York to believe that God is calling Pastor Blonski to serve them as their pastor. The next step is for Pastor Blonski, together with his wife Nancy (and family), to consider whether or not that belief is confirmed for him to accept this new call or to continue with the call here at St. Matthew, Hawthorn Woods. This should be a very healthy process for both congregations and for Pastor Blonski as together the will of the Lord is sought. Our role here at St. Matthew, Hawthorn Woods is to pray for Pastor Blonski and to encourage him during this time. Let us join together in prayer seeking the Lord’s will and wisdom for the Blonski family as they consider where God would have them serve Him and His kingdom.
