Pastor Winckler Farewell Dinner & Capital Campaign Launch

Sunday, Oct. 2, members and friends came together to honor Pastor Paul Winckler and celebrate the kickoff of the Knowing Growing Serving – Christ’s Way Ministry Expansion Campaign.

After serving as Zion Lutheran Church, School & Preschool Associate Pastor for 11 years and 4 months, Paul will continue following Christ’s way in a new role and location, that of Assistant to the President of the South Dakota District of the Missouri Synod located in Sioux Falls. While Pastor Paul begins this new path of service after October 2, Zion will continue to follow Christ’s way here in our growing community of Rapid City.

As increasing numbers of our neighbors search for a clearer path for their families’ spiritual and academic needs, we are expanding Christ’s ministry in this place. Our purpose is to connect more of God’s children to the love, the truth, and the way of Christ Jesus. To do so, we are launching the Christ’s Way campaign in order to create more space for us and our community to Know Jesus, Grow in Faith, and Serve in Love.

We ask God’s blessings on the Winckler family as they walk faithfully in service, and thank Him for his many blessings at Zion as we strive to follow Christ’s way—knowing Jesus, growing in faith, and serving in love.
