Lutheran Church in the Foothills has enjoyed the care of the Rev. Charles “Chuck” Bunnell as interim pastor these past two years.
This Sunday, May 21, Bunnell will be joined by the Rev. Richard “Rick” Hall at worship as part of discerning who will be LCIF’s next pastor.
Hall grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He graduated from Adams State College in 1995 with a degree in history, government and philosophy, and secondary education. He also earned his Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary in 2011. He has served at churches in Wisconsin, North Dakota, and most recently, in Fresno, California.
Hall is married to his wife, Cathy, of 24 years. They have two children, Max and Copper. The community is invited to hear from Hall during 10 a.m. worship on May 21 and stay for fellowship afterward. There is a congregational meeting on June 4 to consider pastoral leadership.
Bunnell, in the meantime, continues to serve and is available to anyone needing help, including visitation at home or in the hospital. The congregation is especially grateful to Bunnell for coming out of retirement to serve LCIF during the lengthy call process.
LCIF would also like to encourage the community to donate blood at its upcoming blood drive on Thursday, May 25, in the church’s Fellowship Hall from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 1 (800) RED CROSS or visiting redcrossblood.org.
