”I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord…” -Luke 2

 I am delighted to be your interim pastor! Christmas brings a renewal of all that God has made. I am blessed to be your partner in this renewal during this time of transition.

 My contact information: work: 920-743-4705. My email address is:

 Hours: On a normal week I will be in the office every morning between 8-9 am. I will take Monday as my Sabbath day. If I have meetings/appointments in the evening, I will work at home during the afternoon. It is always okay to call me on the cell phone or at the church office. When out-of-town, I will have a pastor on-call for urgent matters.

 Brief background: I was born in Minnesota and grew up on a dairy farm. I attended Augsburg College and Luther Seminary in the twin cities. I have served congregations in Illinois and recently in Kenosha, WI. I retired in early 2017. I did a short interim in Racine and a yearlong interim in Green Bay. I am married to Jane who recently retired as a speech pathologist. We moved to Sturgeon Bay in the summer of 2017. We have two daughters: Anna who lives in San Francisco and Molly in Minneapolis. I enjoy bicycling, cross country skiing, traveling, fly-fishing, and playing my guitar.

 May you have a holy and blessed Christmas,

 Pr. David Raben
