The grace, love, and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
I'm beyond grateful to be the pastor here at Trinity United Methodist Church - and I'm beyond grateful that you're checking us out and getting to know us better.
With that being said, let me tell you about myself. I was born and raised in Wisconsin – and yes, the stereotype is true, I do love cheese! I grew up in Superior, WI with my three sisters, parents, and many pets. I studied at Dakota Wesleyan University and at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. Seven years later and I have a Bachelor's in Christian Leadership and a Master of Divinity with a focus on Congregational Leadership.
What those degrees mean is that I love being with people - especially people who love God and love the Church. That may be the reason I love Trinity and why you might love it too: we're a community of people that love God and each other. We're working on growing deeper in our discipleship and care of others. It's my prayer that you join us in that work.
In any case, I'm here for you along with the people of Trinity United Methodist Church. If you need a prayer warrior, an advocate, a counselor, a friend, or even just someone to listen to you, we're here for you.
Until we meet, God’s continued blessings and keeping,
Rev. Thanael Certa-Werner, Pastor
