~ NATIVITY BULLETIN BOARD ~
Reverend Jerry LiaBraaten, a native of Minnesota, is the
pastor at Nativity. He has Bachelor of Music Degree from
Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota, and a Master of
Divinity Degree from Wartburg Seminary, Dubuque, Iowa.
Prior to coming to Nativity in April 2003, he spent 18 years
serving congregations in Virginia.
At Nativity we believe that Christ's life-transforming love for the world is at work in and through us. If
you are seeking a refuge where you will be spiritually fed and a community where your faith can
flourish, then come and experience the deep sense of belonging. Nativity offers warm, reverent, Christ-
centered worship for all ages. Inspiring music and engaging liturgies with biblically based sermons help
us sense and share God's love. We are a community of believers called, guided and empowered by the
Holy Spirit to boldly proclaim God’s grace and joyfully practice the good news as given to us through
the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
