Dear Pastor Davis,

I am writing to inform you that I must resign from my position as Deacon with Maria Lutheran Church. After much prayer and discussion with my family, I have come to the conclusion that I simply have too many outside responsibilities in my life at this time, and that I must pare things down a bit. Two weeks from today, Sunday, October 5, 2014 will be my last day serving as Deacon here at Maria Lutheran.

I truly regret that I must give up my treasured position; however, I am certain it is in the best interest of myself and my family. It is also good for the church because you all deserve a deacon who can offer 100% to the congregation, and I am unable to do so. I am happy to help in any way I can to ensure a smooth transition in my departure, and I intend to remain actively involved in Maria Lutheran.

Thank you so much for your attention and support in this matter. My prayers will be with you as you and the church moving forward.
