Worship Service with Pastor Klappert

2021 Pastor Annika Klappert at Installation Service.

Annika Klappert, our Pastor, 2021-

What I love about my job is that I get to meet so many people in various situations and stages of their lives. It gives me purpose to share their joys and troubles and together search for ways to encourage and nourish them in their faith. I thrive when working with others on new ideas and projects, trying to be the church God needs in this day and age, serving the people of our neighbourhood.

Kai Herrmann in 2020. My family joined Martin Luther Church when we were looking for a congregation to baptize our first child. I moved here from Germany in 2005 and this congregation is my connection to my home country and  reconnecting to the values of Lutherans. As a family we enjoy the services and the leisure activities in our congregation, and I am happy to be part of maintaining and growing the community.

3. Iris Schweiger

My passion is inspiring people to live in and work with the love of Christ. I am always seeking to establish new ways to open the church doors to help neighbours, friends and congregation members find their programming needs. In 2017 I completed a lay preacher training program at the EKD in Germany and have been leading worship on occasional Sundays in English and German at MLC, First Lutheran and St. Georg’s Lutheran Church.

2020 Tanya Zielke. My most favourite part of any service is when we sing. Singing hymns is how I feel connected to God and the Holy Spirit.
