Our Intern for 2017-18
We will once again have an intern this year and will once again be sharing that teaching role with Lutheran Church of Hope in Anchorage. Our Intern is Kate Drefke, a student at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California. Similar to the pattern we used before, Kate will split her time during the week between the two congregations. On Sundays, she will spend two Sundays with us, then two with LCOH. Kate arrives around August 1
and her first Sunday at Joy Lutheran will be August 6
Some needs we have before she arrives:
1. Internship Committee
We need four people who would be willing to serve as part of the Internship Committee. The Committee meets once per month and works closely with the Intern helping her to set goals, discern ministry gifts, and generally help here integrate into the life of each congregation. Please let Pastor Martin know if you would be interested in serving.
We are actively looking for an apartment or similar housing for Kate. A small, two-bedroom place would be ideal. It is suggested that this not be attached to the house of a member of either congregation. Kate does have cats, but she assures me that they are well trained and have not been a problem. If you have leads on a place in either ER or Anchorage, let Pastor Martin know.
