Our Savior’s Lutheran plans welcome for new pastor on Feb. 10

Posted: Monday, Feb 4th, 2013

Katie Jeradek

Since arriving in Huron the end of October to serve Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, the Rev. Katie Jeradek has been busy making herself feel at home.

“I really like Huron,” Jeradek said. “I’m super excited to see what God is going to do with this church and this town. I’m really excited to be here and be part of it.”

An open house for Jeradek will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, at the church.

Jeradek graduated last spring from Lutheran Seminary in St. Paul, Minn.

“God dragged me kicking and screaming into it,” Jeradek says, laughing. “It’s not ever what I imagined I would be doing, but I’m doing it now and I really like it.”

Her first career kept her embroiled in political campaigns at all levels in Iowa — from state legislature to president.

People talk about growing tired of political advertising during campaigns, “but voters only have to put up with it six months or so — inside it was even worse,” Jeradek said.

“I couldn’t do it anymore, there’s not enough grace,” she added. “ I had to find a place with grace, with goodness.”

Jeradek, who is 31, said she believes the message people need to hear the most is simple: God loves you.

“That looks different for everybody, whatever is going on in their life,” she said. “That is the message of the cross and the message of the church — the world is different because of Jesus Christ. That’s the job of the church to make that known.”

The church is also preparing for its upcoming 50th anniversary celebration on Aug. 25. Former pastors have been invited and the Bishop will be attending. More information will be released at a later date.
