Lisa King, Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries
I have been working at BLC since December 2015 but I have attended here most of my life. My mom actually started the Children’s Ministry at BLC when I was three years old. It’s in our blood, lol. I was confirmed here in 1990. Being Lutheran is multi-generational with my family & so the legacy continues, with all 5 of my own children being active participants in many of Bethlehem's ministries.

I am an Auburnite, born & raised; attending Lincoln Way Elementary, EV Cain and Placer High School. The community of Auburn is deeply ingrained in my heart. My father was in law enforcement growing up, serving APD. Community pride & tradition make Auburn a phenomenal place to live & for my husband, Zac, & I to raise our children. One of our favorite places to be on a Friday night in Fall is under the lights, at the football field, cheering for the Placer Hillmen, once a Hillmen always a Hillmen, and sharing that with our kids is pretty special. 

I love children. I love their innocence, their questions, their wiggles & giggles, their trust & openness. I love watching them learn & grow. I love their wisdom & insight. I love their innate kindness & their ability to have fun.

I also really love dogs. Our own 2, Luke and Irish, but also volunteering with my middle daughter at a local rescue, Placer County Paws. It’s a personal dream of my mine to have my own rescue one day. I love to read, anything and everything: fiction, non fiction, it doesn’t matter. I love books. And I LOVE coffee, so very much. Drinking coffee, reading a book, petting a dog, surrounded by children = Best Day Ever!!!

I believe God calls me to love & that is what I do. I breathe in gratitude & exhale love. The message I live by & teach in everything I do, is to be kind always,  Always, always, always, be kind, Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. Whenever it’s possible, be kind, and it’s always possible. 

Love and Peace.
