  • Robert C. Hallenbeck, Minister of Music, July 20, 1947 ~ Nov. 4, 2016

    It is with sadness that we share the news that Dr. Robert Hallenbeck, our Minister of Music, has passed away, at peace and with the full knowledge of being loved by so many, and in the confidence of his relationship with Christ. Dr. Bob’s funeral was held at St. John’s on Wednesday, November 9, 2016.

    O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day 
    our brother Robert. 
    We thank you for giving him to us, his 
    family and friends, to know and to love as a companion on 
    our earthly pilgrimage.
    In your boundless compassion, 
    console us who mourn.
    Give us faith to see in death the gate 
    of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue 
    our course on earth, until, by your call, we are reunited with 
    those who have gone before; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
    Amen.
