Meet pastor sara

Pastor Sara began serving Trinity Lutheran in August, 2017. Sara graduated from Trinity Lutheran Seminary and was ordained in December of 2013. Previous to serving in Lakewood, Sara served at University Lutheran Church in East Lansing, Michigan. Sara is married with two dogs, Toby and Frankie, and her wife, Laura Kuntz, is also an ELCA pastor. Outside of ministry, Sara loves to be outdoors, enjoys reading and writing, and won't say no to a coffee and sweet treat. That's a good thing because she's currently training for her first half-Ironman and can certainly use the extra energy!


Pastor Sara can be reached by email at pastorsaracogsil@gmail.com or at the church office at 216-226-8087.


My heart shall sing the day you bring, Let the fires of your justice burn. Wipe away all tears, for the dawn draws hear, and the world is about to turn.
