Praise God for the Rev. Katherine Schoen
by Rev. David Rodriguez on October 01, 2020
On October 1st, the Rev. Katherine Schoen will be joining our church family.
Katherine is an ordained Minister of the Word and Sacrament in the Evangelical Covenant Church. She will have the same job description as our previous associate pastor, the Rev. Kelsey Ingalls.
When the Session met with Pastor Katherine, we all felt the Holy Spirit moving us to add her to the staff of the church. None of us were surprised that the vote was unanimous.
God has blessed Pastor Katherine with her unique spiritual gifts and experience. We’re looking forward to seeing what the Lord has in store for us as we partner with her in ministry.
Pastor Katherine’s first Sunday with us is October 4. It is fitting that this communion Sunday and that we can begin our ministry together at the Lord’s Table.
I am also looking forward to getting to know Pastor Katherine’s husband Michael and their children: Jonny, Kristian, and Annalyse. From what I’ve heard about Michael, I’m sure he’ll fit right in with the Men’s Poker Night. I’d love to tell you more about that, but what happens at the manse stays at the manse. I can’t wait for the Shelter-In Place restrictions to be lifted so that we get back to the game.
Please be praying for the Schoen family during this exciting time of transition. God has great things planned for all of us.
