Pastor Kruschel Reaches Decision
April 30, 2023
Dear Members of St. John’s,
After much prayerful consideration, I have decided to accept the call to St. Paul’s
Lutheran Church in Platteville. I thank all of you for your prayers and
encouragements on behalf of me and my family over these past many weeks.
We are so very thankful for the ministry we have shared together.
This is an opportunity for all of us to remember that the Lord is the Lord of the
Church. He is the one who keeps it together. He is the one who makes it grow
and move forward. He is the one who is in control. The words he spoke to his
prophet Jeremiah are just as true today as they were back then: “For I know the
plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm
you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
