PASTOR KAREN PAHL

I am blessed to be a child of God, daughter, sister, friend, wife to my wonderful Husband Jeff, mother of a 14 year old daughter and faithful pastor for almost 14 years. I am excited to serve this congregation and bring the gifts of getting to know people, building community, proclaiming God’s Word, and sharing my faith in Jesus that relates to our daily lives.I am always available to sit down and talk over coffee, tea, a Diet Coke (since I grew up in Atlanta), lunch or dinner.  It’s great to get to know you and your family or touch base over questions you have regarding faith and life.

Favorite Scripture: Romans 15:13
“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
PASTOR KELLY NIEMAN ANDERSON

I am excited to serve at LCR, especially with children, youth, and families, bringing my gifts and experiences as teacher, youth leader, and pastor.  My husband, David, often helps me with technical support, at church and in life.  I love to get together for a walk or coffee and learn more about others’ faith journeys.  

Favorite Scripture: 

Romans 1:16-17

 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed”
