Welcome Rev. Todd Karges
The Rev. Todd Karges will join Havelock United Methodist Church as its pastor effective July 1. He succeeds Rev. Amy Seifert, who has been appointed to Central United Methodist Church in Lawrence, Kansas.
Our new pastor has served 12 churches in his approximately 40 years of ministry. He most recently served congregations in Broken Bow, Lexington, and Nebraska City.
He earned a bachelor’s of music education degree from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, and a master’s of divinity from Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City. His most recent trainings include the Two Year Academy for Spiritual Formation and the Walk to Emmaus from Upper Room Ministries.
Pastor Todd loves to use music in his sermons and encourages all kinds of music and musical groups in worship. He is passionate about helping people grow in their faith and teaching them to become disciples of Christ.
Gather with us to worship our risen Savior each Sunday morning at 11 a.m. Sunday school for all ages begins at 9:30 a.m.
We at Havelock United Methodist Church have been proud to serve our northeast Lincoln, Nebraska, neighborhood for 126 years. Much has changed about our community since the first church structure was consecrated in 1890, but our resolve to be the hands and feet of Christ in today’s world has not wavered. We sum up our mission as three important points:
- Love God
- Love our neighbors
- Make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
