Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

This past Saturday I accepted the call to be pastor of the Church of Our Saviour in Baltimore. I will be installed as pastor on Sunday, May 5th, being Rogate, the Fifth Sunday after Easter. My last Sunday at Immanuel will be April 28th.

Be sure of my continued prayers for you. I ask your prayers for me as I begin this new work and for the congregation I will serve. I hope that many of you will be able to come to my installation since this would be encouragement to the people of the Church of Our Saviour and also strengthen the bond of fellowship between the two congregations.

I cannot fully express in words how grateful I am to Immanuel congregation in general and to Pastor Esget in particular: you have made me feel welcome and loved. God has richly blessed me throughout my life, not least in bringing me here to this wonderful congregation. So I thank you with all my heart.

Faithfully yours in Christ,

Charles L. McClean
