Zion American Lutheran (Englestad Leaving – 8 August 1977)

The Rev. Stephen Engelstad, pastor of Zion American Lutheran churches in the Towns of Grant and Pine Valley for approximately the past two and one-half years, has accepted a call to a church in southeastern Wisconsin. He came to the area churches as a Luther seminary graduate.

Pastor Englestad will deliver his last sermons to the Zion Congregations on Sunday, August 7, and he and his family will leave Monday for West Bend. There, he will serve as associate pastor of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, together with the Rev. Larry Kocha.

The Engelstad family includes the pastor’s wife, Gayle, and two daughters, Sarah, two, and Elizabeth, six months.

The Zion congregations have met to send a letter of call to a new pastor.
