Pastor Tor K. Berg is becoming the newest pastor of the oldest Lutheran Church in Washington state. On July 11, he will be installed at First Lutheran Church in Bothell. Established in 1886, the “pioneer” congregation has served the Bothell community for nearly 125 years.

Pastor Berg has been the parish pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church in Pullman for the last 12 years. Before that, he served as associate pastor of Ebenezer Lutheran Church in Lake Stevens. He received his theological training at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, Minn.

The community is invited to join Pastor Berg, his wife, Susan, and their two children, Micah and Hannah, for his installation service at 3 p.m. July 11 at First Lutheran Church, 10207 N.E. 183rd St. A reception will follow the service.
