Come and See –

For the third year in a row St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and the area Lutheran churches are hosting a Gathering for faith formation,  inspiration, and sharing. It will be a day to delve deeply into stories – God’s story, our story, and how they intersect and inspire one another. Through music, biblical storytelling, personal reflection, service, and worship we’ll gather for a day to immerse ourselves in these stories. Our main presenter, Rev. Peder Johanson, will bring his experience as a Biblical storyteller, musician, pastor and traveler to our time together. Come for the day or for part of the day. We’ll enjoy lunch together and end our day with worship. Come and see and be inspired.


Come and Meet  

Rev. Peder Johanson is an ELCA pastor, serving a congregation of the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin. In 2011, he began an enduring and fulfilling discipline of learning and telling biblical stories by heart. As a member of the Network of Biblical Storytellers, International (, he has made biblical storytelling a significant part of his ministry – in worship, faith formation, and pastoral care. In 2014, he entered the Academy for Biblical Storytelling, and has since performed and taught at various synodical and ecumenical gatherings. He is also a musician and songwriter, and seeks to follow Jesus’ prophetic call to live for God’s justice in the world. Peder looks forward to exploring the sacred stories of our faith with his fellow disciples at the gathering in Cole Camp!
