First Lutheran Calls New Associate Pastor – Elisabeth Himmelman
July 26 - August 27
At a congregational meeting on Wednesday, June 29th members of First Lutheran voted to call Elisabeth Himmelman as our new Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Himmelman, who will soon be ordained, will be moving to Kearney with her family in the coming weeks. The call to First Lutheran is part of a partnership with Nebraska Lutheran Campus Ministries. She will also serve as the pastor for University of Nebraska at Kearney’s Campus Lutheran. Her time will be split between Campus Lutheran and First Lutheran.
“In each of our experiences through this call process with Elisabeth, we have found her to be engaging and energetic,” said Co-Pastors Michelle and Rick Carlson. “She has excellent communication skills and is quite creative. Elisabeth has a love for all things related to Youth and Young Adult ministry, from Jesus Jams to lighting candles in prayer. Her enthusiasm will be a welcome addition to our ministry here at First Lutheran as well as at Campus Lutheran.”
Welcome to Kearney Pastor Elisabeth!
