Dear Members and Friends of Webster Groves Baptist Church:
I am resigning as the Pastor of the Webster Groves Baptist Church. I began this journey with you on July 1, 2003 as an interim pastor and I was installed as your Pastor on February 29, 2004.
This has been a good ministry but I now say good-by. The people of Webster Groves Baptist Church are some of the finest of God’s Kingdom. The Deacons have always had a heart for ministry. They take seriously the responsibility of ministering to the members of our church family. I appreciate the role that the deacons assume in our church.
The leaders that chair the committees and those who serve as the elected officers of our church are servant-hearted individuals. I commend them. I am grateful for their work.
The members and friends of our church are kind-hearted individuals. They love the Lord and yearn to honor God in the daily tasks of their lives. I commend each of you.
But now, I say good-by. My final day as your Pastor will be on January 31, 2013.
R. Dean Stewart, Pastor
