Pastor Carlos Schneider, who served St. John’s as both an associate and senior pastor for 21 years, is returning to help us celebrate our 150th anniversary. He joins our worship services on Sunday, July 9 to preach.
Pastor Carlos shared a few of his memories of St. John’s:
“Now, in retirement, I relish the leisure and the gift of time that allows for some reflection on the various ministries that exercised my calling as a pastor. The sesquicentennial celebration at St. John’s gives me the opportunity to think about my time with this historical and faith-filled and creative parish.
“For me, the faithfulness and integrity of St. John’s, its leaders and members, found its expression in its worship of the Risen Christ, its growth in faith and grace, and its service to the Lord by “remembering the poor.”
“There are so many memories that come to mind as we worked to carry out our mission. A fond memory of worship
