Carole Hedrick (Organist)

As a teenager, she traveled weekly from her home in Gordon, NE to Scottsbluff for organ lessons. She received her bachelor's degree in music at Trinity University (San Antonio) and master's degree in sacred music at Union Theological Seminary (NYC). Her "day job" is corporate paralegal for Catholic Health Initiatives. She has a daughter, Elizabeth - a talented singer and current bee researcher/student.

Pastoral Intern Nicole Garcia
Nicole Garcia will become a Pastoral Intern this June as she completes her studies toward ordination in the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Nicole began her education toward ordination in 2013. Nicole has served community as parole officer, teacher, counselor, and nationally recognized speaker. Nicole writes, "I was called to become a Lutheran due to the theology of Martin Luther. Luther realized the theology of his day had taken the people away from the gospel. I am a Lutheran because Christ is the Word made flesh. My life is guided by the Theology of the Cross and I hope we will journey together as a people dedicated to Jesus Christ." Holy Trinity is grateful and anticipating the incredible light Nicole offers to our path as a community serving all of God's children.
