Welcome

Thank you for stopping by our church’s website to learn a little more about us. I am glad you are interested in learning more about our congregation.

I began serving St. Paul Hametown in July of 2012 after serving as a Pastor in Mt. Joy for four years. I attended the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg and graduated with a Masters of Divinity with a concentration in Theology and Public Life.

In addition to serving as Pastor here at Hametown, I also serve on the Lower Susquehanna Synod’s Stewardship table, as a Stewardship Coach, on the Lutheran Camping Corporation Board, and on the Alumni Council at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg.

I love learning and firmly believe in God’s love for each one of us. A great mentor of mine once gave me a note that says, “1. God loves you. 2. God loves you more than you can ever know. 3. There is nothing you can every do about it.” It is a note that hangs in my office and serves as a constant reminder of the ways in which God loves each and every one of us.

In my office you will always find many toys (thanks to my three kids), a Jesus action figure plus many other religious toys, gummi bears, and lots of books. I try to be in the office as much as possible, but am always available by email or by phone. If you find yourself needing to have a time to come and meet, I encourage you to give me a call so that we may find a time to meet. I hope to see you at Hametown soon and that we can learn more about one another and grow as disciples of Christ.

Shalom (God’s peace),

Pastor Katie
