Meet Our Staff

 

The Reverend Sarah Lawton, Pastor

 

 

Rev. Sarah Lawton has served Northeast UMC since 2010.  A life-long Minnesotan, Sarah studied history at Beloit College in Beloit WI, and received an M.Div. from Claremont School of Theology in Claremont, CA.  Sarah has lived in and visited several countries around the world as a happy traveler and a Peace Corps volunteer.Sarah thinks Northeast Minneapolis is the best neighborhood in the city, and loves living, working, eating, drinking, and walking her way through the neighborhood with her little doggie family. Hopefully, Franklin and Yuri can't get on the Internet, but if they do, she wants them to know she loves them very much.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Kris Gater, Office Assistant

She's the friendly voice on the phone, and often the first person you meet when you walk into Northeast UMC. Kris comes to us with a wealth of church administration experience. A member of Blaine UMC, she has been its Hospitality chair, on the Worship Committee and headed up the annual garage sale. She serves as the Blaine church's webmaster. She is also a member of the Professional Association of UM Church Secretaries (PAUMCS).  A 20-year employee at UPS, she served as secretary at Riverview UMC in Brooklyn Park until the church closed in March 2010. A singer, she plays a pretty mean guitar!
