Meet Pastor Louise Ott

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?    –   Mary Oliver

I am humbled by this question and motivated all at the same time.  I choose to pastor a congregation because I want a community that works for the good of others.  I choose to stand for people who have never been to church and for those who have been church-goers for their entire lives.  No matter the diversity of our developing technology, I need connection in real time with others. 

Who am I?  I have been Lutheran, United Methodist (let’s pray for inclusion to win in that family feud), and now I am proudly a United Church of Christ pastor. I am an only child married to Elaine, a retired teacher, who tutors early readers in Pontiac and sings in the church choir.  I live with Elaine in Lathrup Village and we enjoy camping in the out of doors whenever we can. 

Come as you are some Sunday.  I would love to know you.
