Meet Pastor Liz

Pastor Liz:

There’s a new member at Messiah Lutheran Church and her name is Pastor Liz. She is fresh out of Lutheran School of Theology. Born in the “windy city”, she has two sisters, one brother and is the aunt to two nephews. Every Sunday, Fellowship Hall fills with her God-given energy as she delivers her sermon or tells the children that when they respond to her it is their chance to scream in church. She has a passion for justice and people, for connecting a sometimes dusty faith to our everyday life. She is taking her new position as associate pastor one day at a time though. She is trying to listen to God’s voice and be his instrument. “Our faith will make us look internally and externally as well”,she says.In her free time she likes to curl up on the couch and read or watch TV, but her favorite bible verse tells of her greater concerns: “And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
