Twelve years after he received his calling to return to his home state from California, St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church Pastor John Moll received another one from the congregation just a few miles south. Since August, Moll has led not just his own congregation in Algoma, but also Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kewaunee. Immanuel Lutheran Church has been looking for a permanent pastor since Michael Sullivan left for Ottawa, Canada at the beginning of the year. Moll says there are two sides of every calling and understands the difficult decision of going somewhere new or staying where you are.
Moll’s double duty will end at the beginning of 2020 when Pastor Matthew Sprunger of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church of Sanborn takes over.
