Pastor Chris Waldvogel

Cardinals announcer Jack Buck once said that if he could ask God one question, it would be, “Why have you been so good to me?” I suppose I could ask the same question. I am extremely thankful for my wife, Jamie, who I married in 2002 and my son, Jacob, who makes us laugh every day.

God also has truly blessed me in my call to serve Beautiful Savior and the wonderful people in this congregation. The fact that He saw fit to place me in a region with many lakes and places to enjoy fishing, hiking and the outdoors is a great bonus. Although God tends to keep me humble when it comes to my golf game, he has granted a good hole or two on occasion – just enough to keep me coming back.

I thank God for giving us humans so much creativity that we can enjoy in books and on film, but I am most thankful for the story of His plan of salvation with all of His word speaking to me, but Genesis, Psalms, John and Romans giving me the most joy and fulfillment.

Church Secretary Vicki Peihl

I have been blessed to be married to my high school sweetheart, Larry, for over 30 years.  We have three grown children and three grandsons and one granddaughter. My husband and I enjoy traveling.  I also love to read, do genealogy work and bowl.  I thank God for all His blessings to us throughout the years and for guiding me to this church job where I am able to meet and work with so many wonderful people.  God is always there to guide us and I have learned to trust in His plans for me day by day.
