Pastor Janet Hansted

Welcome to St. Luke, a place of genuine community. I’m so thankful to be serving alongside people who genuinely embrace diversity, of all kinds, without exception.  As a Lutheran pastor, I’m someone who believes God is always busy creating, redeeming and renewing the world, whether we recognize God at work or not.  When we come together, it is to celebrate and thank God for the wonder and beauty and goodness of life. And given that the road isn’t always smooth, we’re here to grow in our faith; to help each other trust God to fill in any and all the gaps where our human limits fail us.  We need each other to continually find new ways to keep the door open for holy grace to ultimately prevail, in us, through us and sometimes even despite us!  


My favorite things in life are my two daughters, two dogs, playing volleyball, a rainy day and a good book, friends to laugh and cry with and the thrill of hope that comes as we take actions together to bring about justice and healing for those who have been robbed of either. 


The ELCA (Lutheran Denomination) has the motto, “God’s Work – Our Hands”. If you are looking for a place to call your spiritual home or a faith family to work with to bring God’s light to the dark places of the world, I hope you’ll jump in and join us in our mission of Being God’s Love, Justice and Hope in the World!
