Hello! I am Katie Harrington, the Associate Pastor for Families here at Sardis. It has been such a joy and privilege to serve with you in ministry at Sardis since 2014! During that time, Sardis has experienced a lot of pastoral staff transitions, so I have enjoyed a variety of responsibilities. Currently, I serve as the staff person for the Faith Formation, Life and Care, and Membership Ministries. I also do a lot of pastoral care, funerals, and preaching and praying for worship, as well as serving on the Session, and working with our wonderful staff! One thing I love about my job is that every day is different, and I really enjoy learning people’s stories and connecting people to God, to one another, to our ministries in the church, and to the community.
Outside of Sardis, I am also very active in the Presbytery of Charlotte. I currently serve on the Committee on Representation, which is the nominating committee for the presbytery, and the Anti-Racism Ministry Team. I enjoy getting to know pastors and elders in other churches in the presbytery, and learning how we can learn from one another, and work together in ministry.
My husband, Todd, and I have two crazy and wonderful kids, Max and Josie. We also have a dog, Tasha, who you may have met if you have been on a Zoom with me! As a family, we love to hike, particularly at Ann Springs Close Greenway, and I enjoy running and practicing yoga. I’m also an avid reader and would love recommendations for new books to read!
