While Pastor Meighan Pritchard is on sabbatical July-September 2021, we welcome Sabbatical Pastor Amara Oden, who will lead worship and help our congregation thrive this summer!
Amara lives in Tacoma with my family of five, including three young teens. She recently finished seminary at Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry and am in the ordination process in the Pacific Northwest Conference, hoping to seek a call in this region. She loves to hike and backpack, to cook and eat delicious food, and is having fun learning how to roller skate.
These three months we’ll be spending our worship and reflection time on seeking and experiencing the Divine found in nature. What a wonderful way to reconnect and ground ourselves after the year of zoom and virtual connections. The worship and sermon themes will be Earth, Water, Wind, and Fire. We’ll explore the ways that the Divine shows up through those elements in our lives, as well as through the lives of those in the Bible.
