After she preached a call sermon on September 20, the congregation quickly voted to welcome Pastor Katie to First Pres as our new pastor. She will need to wrap things up with the church at which she has been co-pastor for 19 years in Saint Paul, MN. No fears that she might be a Vikings fan as she has let us know that she and her son DeShawn are die-hard Packers fans!
Once Pastor Katie is able to let us know a date she will arrive, we will communicate that with you. We know that you will make her and her daughter and son (pictured) feel very welcome here, even though the pandemic continues to limit what we are able to do in person. As Pastor Katie says, "While COVID-19 makes so much of our church life together different or challenging, I am certain that God has abundant blessings in store for us still. Let’s discover them together!"
