Co-Pastor Arthur Murray
FIRST DAY AT TLC
August 4, 2014
FAVORITE BIBLE PASSAGE
Psalm103
FUN FACT
I met my wife by playing my trumpet in the New York City subway. Or more accurately, I met someone in the subway who introduced me to someone else who introduced me to my wife. But the fun fact part is that if I wasn’t playing in the subway, I wouldn’t have met my wife.

Interim Co-Pastor Eva Jensen
FIRST DAY AT TLC
January 16, 2021
OUTLOOK
I am a beloved child of God, living by grace and growing in faith and relationships with God, self, and neighbors. I study scripture and pay attention to socio-economic, cultural, environmental and political dynamics of our contexts and time. I seek to discern meaningful connections between God's passion, healing, and care for all that God has made and the brokenness, suffering and inequity that mark our lives. I invite and facilitate theological reflection, prayer, and practical action so that we might discern God's presence and call to be compassionate agents of God's reconciling justice and peace.

Jordan Zahtre
Social Media Support & Adult Education
FIRST DAY AT TLC
November 17, 2020

My name is Jordan Zahrte and I live with my husband, Tim, and 2 year old daughter, Brekken, in Bloomington. We have been members at TLC for a little over a year. We knew TLC was our church home when we saw how welcoming the congregation was towards families and especially towards young children. My professional background is in education, programming and community engagement. I will be assisting TLC in a part-time capacity to support social media and work jointly with adult groups to fulfill existing adult education commitments and create new opportunities for adult education in the TLC community.

Barb Wigstadt
Director, Early Learning Center
FIRST DAY AT TLC
September 1989
FAVORITE BIBLE PASSAGE/STORY
When Elijah met the prophets of Baal and showed them who was really God, and when Shad, Mesch and Abed walked through the fiery furnace and showed them who God really was. The story of the cross can bring me to tears when I think of all Jesus did for me, how awesome his love is and his total sacrifice.
