Sermon Series Beginning September 28th

A sermon series designed to help us to rethink and re-engage what it means to proclaim the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ to our community, and the world. 

Sue Bishop our New Associate Minister of Youth and Children (Starting October 1)

I may be coming to you from Kentucky, but I am a western girl.  I actually was born just down the road from you in Larned.  My parents were serving the Christian Church (DOC) in Macksville at that time, but moved us to Denver, Colorado, before I turned 2 years old.  My father grew up on a dairy farm outside Scott City, Kansas, and we visited there at least once a year.  My senior year of high school saw us moving to Goodland, Kansas.  So you see, I feel I have the right to claim both Kansas and Colorado as my “native” state.

I am proud to say that I am one of seven ministers in our family;  my parents, 2 aunts, an uncle, and a sister, Rev. Dr. Paula Bishop-Pociecha who is currently serving on Regional staff in the northern CA/Nevada Region.  My ministry history has been rather unconventional.  I began doing Youth Ministry as a volunteer when I was 25.  Then years later, I accepted the education and youth position at First Christian Church in Loveland, Colorado, under the title of “licensed/commissioned” minister.  In 1997, I moved to First Christian Church in Garden City, Kansas, serving as youth minster there until 2006.  During that time, I commuted to Colorado Springs to work on my Fuller Theological Seminary Degree, graduating and being ordained in 2004.

I am the proud mother of three daughters and “Nana” to five grandkids.  Jamey Krautz and family live in Centennial, Colorado, south of Denver.  Colleen Lucero and her kids live in Loveland, Colorado, north of Denver.  Emily Christmas-Martin lives in Ft. Worth, Texas, while her brand new husband, Alan Martin, attends Brite Theological Seminary.  My live-in companion is ten year old “Jill’, a poodle-schnauzer mix who is a therapy dog and is in training as a hearing-impaired service dog.  I am an avid reader, sometimes reading 3-4 books at one time.  And I am an apprentice of “scherenschnitte”. 

If you are around me when it snows, you may be drawn outside to dance in it and make snow angels.  (Can you tell I LOVE snow?!)

I am looking forward to spending the next chapter of my life and ministry with you. 

And am anxious for October to arrive.  See you soon.
