Maggie Berndt-Dreyer

Pastor
How long have you worked at Bethlehem? I was ordained and installed here at Bethlehem on June 26th, 2016.
What is your favorite thing about Bethlehem? The diverse ages of the people with whom I get to live and work. I get to hear stories of the past and the wisdom of the life experience from the resident’s at the Tuff Home and Village. I get to feel the energy and excitement for life and hope for the future that the littlest ones bring to our community, and walk with the people who are starting new chapters in their lives, like marriage, parenthood, or retirement.
What are some of your favorite hobbies and interests? I enjoy spending time with my husband, Alan, hiking, running, and traveling. I’m also a part of the Basement Dwellers Improv Comedy troupe based in Sioux Falls.

What is your favorite thing about Bethlehem? Trying to keep up with the youth. I like that it’s not a big church, but not a small Church either. As a job I couldn’t ask for anything better then cleaning God’s house.
What are some of your favorite hobbies and interests? Spending time with my family and friends. Yard work in the summer, riding my Harley and taking trips.

What is your favorite thing about Bethlehem?  I enjoy many things at my church.  It is very difficult to name one thing.  I love to play organ at the church. I enjoy Pastor Maggie, our Lenten Services which also include soup suppers.  I am a mentor for one of the confirmation students and enjoy the monthly meeting. At the present time I attend the weekly bible study group which meets Sunday mornings at 9:30. We are reading the entire bible and really enjoying the discussion.
