Greetings! My name is Sarah Carlstrom. I am so blessed to be here in Dawson partnering with the great people of Crossroads Lutheran Congregation to serve the LORD. I began my call here in January of 2016. My calling is to care for the sheep the Father has entrusted to me; feeding the sheep, healing the sick, strengthening the weak, binging the injured, bringing back strays, searching for the lost, and doing these things with justice and love (Ezekiel 34) with the help of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ and empowered by Holy Spirit. I attended St. John’s School of Theology and Seminary in St. Joseph, MN to earn a Masters of Divininy and completed my Lutheran work at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. I served 7 years as the Youth & Family Ministry Coordinator and 6 years as a Choir Teacher in the public school system in the past.

I love music, reading, playing board games and spending time with my family. I married my best friend, Justin, in 2006. We both grew up in Wadena, MN. Our continued prayer together is that we would grow closer to each other and closer to the LORD. We know firsthand to be careful what you pray for, because God will answer – sometimes in a way you never expected! We also trust that God has a plan for us, not to harm us but to give us a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Crossroads Lutheran Congregation is a place to help people connect their gifts with serving the Lord and others in the community. This means our work, families, hobbies, and faith lives intersect at an important Crossroads everyday!  Our vision is to be disciple-making disciples that impact the corners of the earth by GROWing Faith in Jesus (Go make disciples, Rooted in scripture, with Opportunities to bear fruit to Worship God. If you don’t have a church home, we warmly welcome you to visit our church family either in person or through the video live streams. We truly believe the LORD led you here and look forward to serving Him with you.
