Here is the note from our district flash regarding the funeral service for Rev. Robert Visser, long time pastor at Messiah, Citrus Heights (among many other places in the district).
A funeral service for Rev. Robert M. Visser will be held Tuesday, January 8, 2019, 11 am, at Messiah Lutheran Church, 7801 Rosswood Road, Citrus Heights, CA. Following immediately, interment is at Mt. Vernon Memorial Park, Fair Oaks, CA.
This conflicts directly with our circuit Winkel, which is scheduled for that Tuesday morning, the 8th, at Mt. Olive, Folsom.
After consultation with some of the brothers as well as Pastor Hochgrebe at Mt. Olive, we have decided to move our Winkel to Tuesday, January 15th at 9:00 a.m.
I will send a notice out about Winkel ahead of time. I hope that all of you are able to make it to Rev. Visser’ s funeral service. We are not vesting, but some of us will wear clericals. Either way, see you then!
