Mercer Island Presbyterian Church's new pastor

Mercer Island Presbyterian Church recently welcomed a new senior pastor, Kristy Farber. Her first Sunday service was Feb. 28.

Mercer Island Presbyterian Church leaders recognize Farber for her gift of preaching. She has a strong track record in community building and leadership, both within the church and in the surrounding community.

The church invites the Mercer Island community to join them in welcoming Farber and encourages all those interested to attend an upcoming Sunday worship service to hear and meet her.

Farber served as a pastor in Asheville, North Carolina, although her roots are in the Seattle area. She graduated from the University of Washington and received a master’s in teaching from Seattle University, and she taught honors courses at Newport High School.

She also served as the director of campus ministry at University of Puget Sound before heading back east to earn her master’s in divinity at Princeton Seminary.

Mercer Island Presbyterian Church is located at 3605 84th Ave. SE. For information, call 206-232-5595.
