Announcing the Retirement of Pastor William McBride

It is with sad and heavy hearts that your Staff-Parish Relations Committee of Marinette First, Peshtigo and Harmony,
has been presented with the task of announcing the retirement of our dear Pastor William McBride.

Pastor Bill has been in ministry for 40 years, starting and growing churches around the state of Wisconsin, writing
books and bible studies, and providing on line education.  This has been a hard decision for him, but he feels, with
the guidance of God, that this is the best time for him and his wife, Julie.

As our conference requires a 6 month notice, Pastor Bill has agreed to continue our Facebook online services,
Wednesday prayer meetings, on line Zoom meetings, phone calls, hospitals and nursing home visits when possible,
and the out door worships as scheduled.  His last day of on line service will be December 13th and the last day as
our pastoral care will be December 31st.

We wish Pastor Bill and Julie the best in any future endeavors and in retirement.  May God bless them in their
new journey.

May our Lord be with you.
