Official Pre-acceptance Letter from

Chris Schneider

May 6, 2015

Dear Members of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church:

I am writing this letter to inform you that I have received the Call to your congregation issued to me through the Board of Assignments on April 29, 2015.

Although I intend to accept the Call, I am not eligible to do so until I have finished my Master of Divinity program on May 22, 2015.  At that time I will be able to officially accept the Call and look forward to doing so.

In Christ,

Chris Schneider



The ordination and installation of soon-to-be Pastor Chris Schneider will be on June 28th at 3:00 p.m. in our Sanctuary.  We invite you to be a part of this special worship service!  We will hear the Good News of Jesus preached by Pastor Chris’s father, celebrate that another pastor is given to us, and pray for him, his family, and BSLC as together we Boldly Share the Love of Christ. 

Following the service, join us in the Family Life Center for a reception to welcome the Schneider family and celebrate this special occasion.  A basket will be provided for you to place cards, gift cards, and/or other expressions of good will as we welcome Pastor Chris, Jessica, and their baby boy Noah to Lee’s Summit and BSLC.
