*An Invitation from Lori Nickoloff…

Oct 13, 2018


Dear Friends in Christ, I have recently begun a call to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Penn Yan.  This is a major milestone in my journey toward becoming a Minister of Word and Sacrament.  I want to thank you for all of the love and support that you provided me each step of the way.  You helped me realize my gifts for ministry and provided encouragement during my time in seminary.  When Keith and I spent time away for my internship, you reminded us that we always have a home at BLC through your outreach and prayers.  I feel blessed beyond words to have been part of this particular part of the Body of Christ.

I will be ordained on Saturday, December 1 at 10:30 am.  I have chosen Bethlehem as the place for this special service because of the significant role you played in my formation and journey.  I would be honored to have you join me for this celebration with your presence/prayers.  I also ask that you keep the people of St. Paul’s and myself in your prayers as we begin the important work of ministry together.

Blessings, Lori Nickoloff
