Greetings!Pastor Kirsten Barlow

 The First United Methodist Church here in Pueblo has a rich history and I look forward to learning about all of the ministry that is going on in and through all of you, the church.  Together we will continue to do God’s work in Pueblo and beyond!

 I look forward to being your pastor at The First United Methodist Church in Pueblo.  It is a privilege!  I come to you from The First United Methodist Church in Fort Lupton, Colorado where I have served as the pastor for the last three years.  Prior to that I served for seven years at Sunrise in Colorado Springs.

 As my husband Tom and I get settled into Pueblo I hope that you’ll be patient with me.  It will take me a little time to get your name committed to memory, but I will work diligently to get to know your name and who you are.

 You might be interested to know that my husband Tom is also an ordained elder in the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church.  He is an adjunct professor at the Iliff School of Theology in Denver and is finishing his PhD in theology at Iliff and the University of Denver.

 We have two 7 ½ year old Shelties (Shetland Sheep Dogs), Buster and Bear.  We rescued them 1 ½ years ago when their owner could no longer take care of them.  One of my hobbies is taking them for daily walks.  We enjoy our time together.

 I want to thank you in advance for welcoming us to Pueblo.  It is my privilege to be your pastor.

 As we begin this journey together let us always remember to share God’s love with each other and with all those we meet.  As it says in 1 John 4:19, “We love because He first loved us”.  Let us spread the love of Jesus to our world that is often broken, battered, and hurting.

 Blessings,

Kirsten

Rev. Kirsten Barlow 

P.S.  I am fairly informal about names, titles, etc.  You can call me Kirsten.  If you have a younger person in your household and prefer to have them address adults with a title, I am fine with being called Pastor Kirsten.
