Michael Lochard Obituary, Death Cause – This information is being passed along to you with a heavy heart. On Thursday night, March 29, 2019, Michael Lochard, who had recently been called to serve as our new Pastor at CrossPoint Concordia, passed away unexpectedly.
Michael has historically worked as a devoted volunteer leader at CrossPoint Lindsborg. He has also been serving as the interim Pastor in Concordia for the past few months.
We are able to find comfort in the knowledge that His hold on us is unwavering. 1 Thessalonians chapter four brings to our attention the fact that, in contrast to those who are without hope, we do not grieve. We know that Michael’s faith in our rising Christ is now sight because of Michael’s faith, and this is because of his confidence in our risen Lord. Even though we are going through a difficult time, we can celebrate because Michael is finally at peace with his Savior.
Most recently, Michael was hired to begin serving as the new Pastor in Concordia beginning this coming Sunday, April 2nd. In addition, Jennifer, Michael’s wife, has prior experience working at CrossPoint Hutchinson in the capacity of Pastor’s Assistant. They are greatly loved by our church family because of how well they have loved others.
We are all shocked by the news, and we feel obligated to tell you about it so that you can pray for Jennifer and their seven children, Adrien, Stephanie, Walker, Andrew, Zaleigh, Leah, and Keneth. We are all heartbroken by the news, and we feel obliged to tell you about it.
We are able to cling to Him even in the midst of the most intense anguish, and even when we don’t have the ability to do so.
