PASTOR TO BE INSTALLED
St. John Lutheran Church of Romeo will officially install its new pastor on Sunday, March 9, at 3 p.m. The community is invited to attend. The Rev. Martin Gehring replaces Mark Evans, St. John's longtime pastor. Above, The Rev. Gehring, and his wife, Ruth, come from Fort Wayne, Ind. where he was pastor of Risen Savior Lutheran Church since 2005. "It must be with humility that we respond to this calling . . . to be faithful to my sense of call means to be constantly digging down to the heart of the gospel, and keeping that gospel front and center in my own life, and in the life and teaching of the congregation," said Gehring. For more information, call the church at (586) 752-4588. The church is located at 246 Benjamin St. in Romeo.
