Message from Intern & Contract Pastor Chere Riedel:
My name is Chère Riedel and I will be serving as your intern and contract pastor. Recently, I lived in Connersville, Indiana with my husband Bob. Although Bob will not be moving with me due to his employment situation, but he will be a frequent visitor at Peace Lutheran Church. We have been married for 31 years and are originally from Eastern Pennsylvania. We grew up not knowing each other, even though we attended the same schools.
In addition, we will be seeing the oldest of our sons on a regular basis. Rob and his wife, Dolores, along with Mandy and Kathleen (We call her Kat Kat.) will be driving to Rosenberg from Lawton, Oklahoma. Rob is retired from the Army, but he is employed as a civilian contractor at Fort Sill.
We have two other sons, Michael and Gary.
Michael is married to Kimberly and they live in Savannah, Georgia. Their children are Evan, Sophie and Ethan. Michael is also a veteran,
who recently returned from Afghanistan.
Gary is married to Melissa and they have a blended family of Aubry, David, Jacob and Skylar.
Seminary has been the focus of my attention for a few years. I graduated in 2016 from the Institute of Lutheran Theology in Brookings, South Dakota with a Pastoral Ministry Certificate. Later that year, I was enrolled in the Master of Divinity Program and was privileged to spend my first year of seminary as a Fellowship student. By December, I hope to have completed more than half of my academic requirements for the MDiv. Degree.
As we look forward, I hope to meet and visit with each of you and get to know each of you.
