Mount Si Lutheran Church welcomes the Rev. Krista Mendoza as the church’s new pastor on Friday, Dec. 1.

Mendoza, a Seattle native, will return to the Northwest for this ministry. She graduated from Luther Seminary with a master’s degree in divinity in 2011 and accepted her first call to ministry at a church in New York where she was the pastor for six years.

Community members are invited to the 9:30 a.m. Sunday service for Advent Sunday and the church’s annual Advent Festival immediately following. The festival features crafts and activities for all ages, along with refreshments.

All are also invited to the service of installation for Mendoza, 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16. Bishop Kirby Unti and Assistant to the Bishop Shelley Bryan Wee will assist with the service, which will welcome new pastors from the local area and from the NWWA Synod. A reception with coffee and cookies will follow.

The mission of the church is serving others. Visit www.mtsilutheran.org for more information.
