From The Pastor At St. Paul's UCC, Freeburg, IL

50th Anniversary Coming

June 7 will mark the 50th anniversary of Pastor Herb Schafale’s ordination, and we’ll be honoring that with a luncheon after worship that day. 50 years of ministry – when I think of all the weddings, funerals, confirmations, hospital calls, etc. etc., it boggles my mind! Herb was the pastor at St. Paul’s here in Freeburg from 1964-1980; and while he’s “retired” now and still a member at St. Paul’s, he’s always been very careful not to infringe on pastoral authority or standing. Former pastors can wreak havoc on a congregation, but Herb has been very professional and supportive, and I’m very thankful that he’s with us.

There will be more to say in upcoming Scope articles, but for now mark your calendar for June 7 and come honor 50 years of ministry!
