During our worship service last Sunday we celebrated the ordination of Brie Kruger for ministry in Mennonite Church USA. Brie currently serves as a Chaplain with Providence Hospice, after recently completing Clinical Pastoral Education and Palliative Care training at the Portland VA. She completed theological studies at Fuller Theological Seminary in 2009. Brie and her family have been attending PMC for 8 years; she is married to Paul and is mom to Sam. She is the Chair Elect of our Leadership Table. Brie is also a musician, pie baker, camper and an avid reader. The celebration of Brie's ordination was led by Katherine Jameson Pitts, Executive Conference Minister for the Pacific Northwest Mennonite Conference (PNMC), and by Marlene Bogard, who serves as our PNMC District Pastor, and included glad participation from the congregation. Congratulations Brie!
