PHILLIPS — A semi-retired pastor restoring a Flambeau cabin, said he felt a calling to serve again, and a Phillips congregation agreed.
The Rev. Dean A. Arbs was installed as pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Phillips on April 18. He served as a temporary pastor for a year while the church’s synod affiliation, North American Lutheran Church, considered allowing a minister from the American Association of Lutheran Churches synod to serve as a full time pastor.
