Interim Pastor Deanna Wildermuth My life journey has been a cross country venture: from childhood (in Sumner) through college (at WWU) in Washington state, through early adulthood in Missouri and Oregon, through time spent in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and back to Washington. During my life travels I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love to read, camp, stitch, and cook. Music and singing fill my soul. My work has been varied: from teaching young children to providing services for the elderly, from administrative work to custodial employ, from wife and mother to student and then to pastor. I served congregations from very small to very large, from rural to small towns to cities to suburbs. I have been solo, an associate, and head of staff. In September 2020, I began serving as Executive Director of Interfaith Coalition in Bellingham, retiring from full-time employment on August 31, 2022. Beginning in June 2022, I serve as Care Pastor at Christ the Servant. I am delighted to join the congregation as they prepare for their next called pastor. Here is one way I describe my core: I knit, simply defined as using two sticks and a string to create a series of loops and knots built on two stitches with results of extraordinary diversity. Our work as God’s people could be similarly defined. When asked, Jesus said it all comes down to two ‘stitches’: love God and love your neighbor. We knit, putting these two stitches to work in a world that is increasingly diverse that is our creative call. Now to God who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish far more abundantly all that we could ask for or imagine to God be the glory. (Ephesians 3:20)
