  1. Pastor Groteluschen baptized me (and 11 other children from only 3 families) in Nov. 1957 at Trinity Lutheran in Bristol, TN. We were indeed the Baby Boomers coming to faith. I saw him again in 2018 in Memphis (61 years later) as I was attending the Deacon’s Colloquy program in Memphis. He was sharp as ever and, while he did not remember me personally, he remembered my parents, Ward and Flo Carter and even told me stories of them and Trinity, Bristol. Pastor Groteluschen was a rock of Confessional Lutheran Doctrine and a lion form spreading the faith. Timothy Carter, simple country Deacon. Kingsport, TN.
