Rev Linda Kozlowski

 

 

He said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Gospel of Matthew 22:37-40

Rev. Linda Kozlowski began serving as the Pastor of Good Shepherd United Church of Christ on November 18, 2019.
