Our Pastor

The Reverend Kim Shrader is the pastor of the Winslow Congregational and Benton Falls Congregational Churches. Previously she pastored churches in Washington and Colorado. She earned her M.Div from Seattle University. You can listen to her sermons over on Airtable.


When I preach, I relate the Scriptures to the lives of the congregation.  There is a connection between what we believe and what we do.  So I will frequently ask, “how does what you believe shape your actions and how do your actions reflect your beliefs?”  I believe God makes a difference in our lives, that our Creator loves us deeply and completely.  When we allow the grace of that love to sink into our beings, it makes a very real difference in our lives.  I think preaching and worship should remind us of that grace and love so that our everyday lives are enriched and transformed.
