I'm New

Pastor Karen Larson


Welcome to the Berne Church! We're the church that's big enough to do God's work, and small enough to know you.

I'm thrilled to be part of this faith family that loves God and neighbor and welcomes all to the party. We gather from many small towns at this sanctuary on the hill. Our worship is informal, intimate and intergenerational. We honor each person’s spiritual journey and welcome everyone to Christ's table.

While we govern ourselves locally, we're grateful to be part of the United Church of Christ, which reminds us that God is still speaking, and so we are still listening. We trust God's creating and reconciling power, and throw ourselves into Jesus' call to love God and neighbor. We would be blessed to have you worship God, serve the community, make pizza, and enjoy the music with us!
