Under en längre tid har rekrytering pågått för att finna en Associate Pastor för att betjäna den internationella gemenskapen i Immanuelskyrkan. Det är en pastorstjänst som ska fungera tillsammans med pastor Chris Peterson i olika pastorala uppgifter med ett särskilt fokus på ungdom och unga vuxna. Vi känner oss beredda och ledda till att föreslå pastor Peter Anderson till den här tjänsten och Peter känner sig ledd att acceptera kallelsen. Styrelsen har beslutat att följa förslaget från sökgruppen. Vid församlingsmötet den 8 oktober kommer styrelsen därför att be församlingen i Immanuelskyrkan att formellt kalla Peter till tjänsten som Associate Pastor. Peter är ordinerad pastor i vår systerkyrka Evangelical Covenant Church, USA.

Sommar is 4 years old and full of energy and joy. She has a very creative, individual, and adventuring spirit. Haakon will turn 1 on December 28th. He is a cuddle bug and is always smiling!

He is also the main preacher at the 6 PM evening service. His other pastoral responsibilities include: weddings, funerals, hospital visits, and general pastoral care. Anne loves being a part of the congregation at Crossroads, meeting students, being a part of bible studies, and getting to know people!
