Pastor Nathan's Farewell Letter


Norman and Davenport Parish
161 Walnut St. Kindred, ND 58051    701-428-3765


August 10, 2013

Grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

As many of you are aware, my time with you is coming to an end.   As I reflect upon the last two years, I am amazed at all the ways in which God has brought us together to share in many of life’s events.  With some of you I have shared great joys and celebrations.  With some I have shared great times of sorrow and grief.  It has been an honor to share in these events along with other moments that we have shared in the Gospel, shared in the love of God and be the very Body of Christ together.

I can not say “thank you” enough for all that you have shared, given to me and what we have done together in sharing the Gospel.  Thank you for your love, your prayers, your encouragement, and above all, your willingness to go where God was calling us while I served as your Pastor.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of that time with you.

Yet as I depart, I know that I am leaving you in good hands.  I see the great potential that you have within your future that we have worked towards in the past two years.  Within these past two years, we have done so much and done a lot of work to prepare the path for the future.  We have established many great teachings that will allow the whole congregation to continue in their faith journey and welcome others into their own faith journey. Looking to the future, I see many blessings and joys that are able to happen within the two congregations.

I have received a Letter of Call to the Portland Parish as their Senior Pastor.  I leave knowing and trusting that the Interim Pastor will care for you and your needs.  Along with sharing with you the love that Christ has given to us all.  I know also that God will deliver unto you, the gift of a new Pastor who will care for you as I have.   I will continue to pray for you as you continue to be the people that God is calling you to be and guide you down the road together.

God’s rich blessings be upon you all,



Pastor Nathan Strong
