Dear St. Peter Family,  

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that God has led me and Jen to accept the Call to St. John,  Cypress. In the past few weeks we have been doing a tremendous amount of praying, and we have  asked God to make it clear to us what His Will is. He has made His Will very clear: we are to accept the  Call to St. John. This will be very difficult for us, since we have so many dear friends and love so many  people at St. Peter. We will continue to love you.  

Certainly, God loves the people of St. Peter and must have a plan for her future, including a wonderful  new pastor. I firmly believe that St. Peter’s best days are ahead! Although it may be difficult to see this  from our perspective, we trust. Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what  we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)  

I thank you for your prayers over the past few weeks, and all of your kind words of appreciation and  affirmation. They have been heard! It will be very difficult for us to say goodbye to you. We will  continue to pray for you and for St. Peter.  

As you digest this news, please trust in God. Please remember that church is not about the pastor, but  about Christ Crucified! Please remember that what makes St. Peter a special place is YOU, not me. I am  completely confident in our church leadership to shepherd the congregation through this time. I am  completely confident in God’s promises of blessings for St. Peter and His people here. I am completely  confident in Pastor Arendell, who is a great pastor, as well as the rest of our staff.  

Please continue to pray for our family as we prepare to move to Houston. My last Sunday and other  dates will be announced soon by our lay leaders. Let us take this time to celebrate everything God has  done for us!  

With much love and affection,
Pastor Mark
