Mr. Rafael’s Retirement Open House Celebration

Mr. Rafael’s Retirement
Open House Celebration

This summer will mark the end of Mr. Rafael’s time at Parkland Lutheran. He started serving Parkland Lutheran in 1999!

As a “thank you” to Mr. Rafael for his 21 years of service, we are inviting all of you to attend a special open house celebration on Sunday, July 26, from 11:30am to 3:30pm, in the Ark (social distancing guidelines will be observed).

We are grateful for his valuable years of service at Parkland Lutheran, and would like to openly thank him.

We want to thank Mr. Rafael for his 21 years of service at Parkland Lutheran in two ways:

  • Collect contributions toward a “thank you” gift.
  • Express our thanks at an open house celebration after the services on July 26.

If you would like to contribute towards his gift, please turn in any donations to Parkland Lutheran by Monday, July 13 (please make checks payable to Parkland Lutheran Church and write “Mr. Rafael’s Retirement” on the memo line). You can also contribute electronically by clicking here (choose “Other” and specify purpose as “Mr. Rafael’s Retirement”).
