Andrew Vincent Chavanak Ordination
June 19, 2011


Sunday, June 19 was not only Fatherís Day, but a
very special day in our congregation. We have all
watched Andrew Chavanak grow up in our church
and have prayed for him as he answered the Call and
attended seminary. We rejoiced with him when we
learned of his graduation with honors on May 13th
from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with a Master of Divinity
degree and when we learned that St. Paul Evangelical
Lutheran Church of Fall City, Nebraska extended a
call to him on May 8th. It was not surprising that we
had 105 people in attendance on June 19th at 1 p.m.
to witness his ordination. Interim Bishop Kenneth
Olsen did the honors of officially ordaining him as
Pastor Andrew Vincent Chavanak.


Andrew writes:
My family and I cannot thank you all enough for all
your love and support over the years. It was truly an
honor and a great joy to be able to worship with my
home congregation and to celebrate my ordination to
the ministry of word and sacrament with people I
love so dearly. The people of Emmanuel will
continue to be in our thoughts and prayers as you
navigate this time of transition. We pray that you will
be comforted and guided by God's Holy Spirit as you
seek to move forward in mission and ministry in
service to God and to the world.
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Andrew V. Chavanak
St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church - ELCA
Falls City, Nebraska
