At the beginning of August, the parishioners at the Trinity Lutheran Church welcomed Rev. Timothy Schneider to Golden.
Schneider came to Golden from Edmonton where he had been a student for a number of years.
He explained he enjoys the area and had been here in the past.
“I love it here. Our district church body for Alberta and British Columbia holds a ball tournament here every two years,” Schneider said.
One of the things he enjoys about the area are the mountains.
“The mountains around here are great. Where I am living there is a nice view out of every window,” he said.
Schneider said leading worship service every week has been something he has looked forward to for a long time.
He added he also enjoys going hiking with his wife Kristin.
Another area of interest is taking some time to get out and enjoy the many National Parks within driving distance of Golden.
Schneider said he is happy to be in the area and is looking forward to meeting many local people.
