Meet our Pastor
The Rev. Lee R. Gable

Welcome to Fredsville. I have been serving God in this community since October 1, 2022. I describe my style as Reverent Joy, at worship, Bible study, or around a campfire. I want to walk with others as they discover the movement of God in their daily lives. Each of us is unique, bearing the fingerprint of the divine. Yet, no two people navigate their spiritual life the same way. We are pilgrims journeying toward the horizon of hope. Jesus meets us on this road together and the Holy Spirit guides our hearts and our steps as we strive for faith that is active in love. We are invited to live in the way of Jesus, reflecting God’s love, joy, peace, justice, and harmony with all people and all of creation. I want each person to feel heard and to know that their questions, their story, their life is precious to God. I welcome the opportunity to walk and talk with you and see where God is inviting you.
