The consecration of David Goeke as a Licensed Lay Deacon was held in St. John Lutheran Church on Sunday at 3 p.m. Participants included sons Rev Aaron Goeke, liturgist, Rev. Paul Goeke, lector, and Timothy Goeke, lector. Proclaimer Rev. Michael Newman and other pastors of the Lutheran church also took part in the service. Soloist was Aviana Burkepile of Kyle, and Pamela Fischer accompanied her on piano. After the inspiring service, refreshments were served to the many members of the family, relatives, friends and members of St. John. Members of St. John welcome David Goeke to our fold.
