The Diocese Gives Thanks for the Ministry of the Rev. Rebecca Michelfelder
The diocese gives thanks for the ministry of the Rev. Rebecca Michelfelder, retiring interim rector of Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount. Michelfelder has served as Good Shepherd's interim rector since October 2021 and has served the wider church through the years, including completing nine interim rector calls. We wish Becky Godspeed as she retires and enters into a new season of her life and ministry.
Gracious God, we thank you for the work and witness of your servant Becky, who has enriched this community and brought gladness to friends and family; now bless and preserve her at this time of transition. Guide her in the continued use of your gifts. Give her sustenance for temporal and spiritual needs, friends to cheer her way, and a clear vision of the ministry to which you are now calling her. By your Holy Spirit be present in her pilgrimage, that she may travel with the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
