Peter Ahlersmeyer is settling into his new role as pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church of Fenton. He came to Fenton from Concordia Lutheran Church in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. His installation service was Thursday, June 17 and on Sunday, June 20 he assumed the role of pastor.
“I’m excited to be here in Fenton and serve as Trinity Lutheran Church’s new pastor,” Ahlersmeyer said. “A lot of people have asked me why I would be so inclined to accept a new position as our world continues to grapple with this pandemic. But after giving the decision much prayer, with a new facility and members who are eager to share to love of Christ in this community, I feel that Trinity is positioned well to be a place where the Gospel is proclaimed in word and deed.
“I’m excited to see the direction and vision of this congregation and how God will use me to guide Trinity into a new season of ministry.”
One of Ahlersmeyer’s and the staff’s goals is to find more ways to engage the Fenton and surrounding communities and to remind them that Trinity is a place of belonging.
“I want everyone to know that when they come to Trinity, they are a loved child of God who has worth and value,” he said.
“Making the move to Fenton with me is my wife, Emily, and our three children Addison, Quinn, and Henry.”
As for hobbies, Ahlersmeyer enjoys going to concerts with his wife and taking hikes with the family. He is also an avid record collector and has enjoyed exploring all the record stores in the Flint area.
