We miss you guys at Messiah, but we're slowly getting used to this new landscape! The people here have been so welcoming and kind as we transition to life in Nebraska.
Timothy's role is up and running full-time at the synod office, and just last week I accepted a call to be Pastor at Salem Lutheran in Fontanelle, NE. We'll live next door at the parsonage and Timothy will commute most weekdays into Omaha.
Living in a farming community will be a big change, but we think it will be a great learning and leadership experience! I feel so blessed to have a clergy coach, Spiritual Director, a local cluster group, and clergy friends that live about a half hour away. Salem has a great energy for a new chapter in their life and I'm excited to serve (with) them!
Please share the information below as we hope to invite Messiah and other congregations that have been supportive in our growing and discernment in our calls!
