Happenings @ MESSIAH | June 2024

MEET YOUR NEW VICAR!

(The first pic is of me & my family on a recent trip to Colmar, France)

To the congregation of Messiah,

Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I am blessed and honored to have the privilege to serve as your vicar this coming year! It is with a joyful and eager heart that I accept this vicarage assignment and I look forward to serving in the church and the greater community! The anticipation of call day has been weighing heavy on my heart, praying that God would grant me a healthy and formative vicarage which He will use to continue to equip me for the furtherance of His kingdom and I am so blessed that God will use you all as part of His calling on my life! I look forward to doing God’s work and worshipping alongside you all in this coming year!

I look forward to arriving in Clio and getting to know you all more, but until that day comes, allow me to tell you a little bit more about myself. I am from Valley Center, California, a small town in north San Diego County. Both of my parents were heavily involved at my home church, where my dad, also named Dayton, is a deacon and my mother, Maria, serves as the director of discipleship. My older sister, Laura, lives with her partner about an hour north of home in Orange County. My girlfriend Tosin is finishing her final semester of law school and graduates on May 13th, so prayers for her to finish strong are greatly appreciated! My favorite hobbies include cooking, baking, cycling, disc golf, traditional golf, and tennis, so if anyone would like to catch up over a bike ride, a quick 9 holes, or a few sets, let me know! I also love to try new foods, so please send any regional recipes or restaurant recommendations my way!

As we wait for my start date to approach, it is my prayer that God would continue to bless you all in your ministry by pouring out the Holy Spirit upon you all! I pray that God would continue to use your church as a way that He spreads His gospel light to your community! I pray that God will equip me to serve faithfully as your vicar and that He would use my time at Messiah to continue to form and teach me how to be a shepherd to His flock, a better fellow brother in Christ, and to ready me for a life of work in His service! God bless and keep you all, and I greatly look forward to serving you all this coming year! See you soon!

Thank you for your time and God bless,

Dayton A. Dangel – Future Vicar

PERSONALS CLOSET - Volunteers help obtain, sort, and distribute hygienic products (soap, shampoo, tooth brushes, etc...) to the men, women and children of Flint's East Side on the first Tuesday of each month.

CUSTODIAL PROGRAM - Volunteers serve as mentors to trainees and help them prepare to find employment after their completion of the program. Volunteers should have professional experience in any field, and be able to confidently coach mentees through an interview process.

THE UPPER ROOM - Volunteers help prepare fellowship meals for our community to gather around following worship on Sunday evenings. All rostered LCMS pastors, vicars and deacons may volunteer to preach when their congregations attend.
