Hope Church pastor Richard Feyen retiring after 10 years

Reverend Richard Feyen will officiate his last service at Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay on September 1st.   Feyen says the congregation is in much better shape than when he arrived from St. Germaine 10 years ago.  The church was in the midst of a crisis of faith and declining membership.  With a vibrant community now in place,  Reverend Feyen decided this was a good time to retire.  He says his proudest accomplishments were helping create a welcoming atmosphere and making Hope Church more than just a building.



Feyen and his wife have purchased a motor home.  They plan to visit their five-daughters and their families and just see the country, though they plan to maintain their primary residence in Kewaunee County.  Reverend Gary Brinn from Maine will join Hope Church as pastor on October 1st.
