BROWNSDALE, Minn.—Pastor Ken Petzold has retired from First Baptist Church after ministering there since 2013. Showing their love and appreciation for Ken and his wife, Dianne, the ladies of the church gave the couple a handmade quilt.

Ken calls his time at First Baptist “a wonderful and blessed five years.”

The church, which celebrated its 150th anniversary last year, held an open house for the Petzolds on July 8, and the next day Ben Simon began serving as pastor. “God always provides for His children,” the church says.
