John Allen

Pastor

John believes that the Church is a place where God’s love comes alive! He loves seeking the many and surprising ways that God’s voice is still speaking to us today: through ancient stories, through the music of our tradition, through the joy of our children, and through the lives of all God’s people.

Katherine believes that the stories of scripture and the practices of our faith have the power to inspire young people to make their community and their world a better place. In addition to being a graduate of Harvard Divinity School, she was also a student farmer at The Farm School in Athol, MA, where she learned to repair tractors, plant kale, and improve the global food system. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing, and spending time with her dog, Gus.
