Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church :: Pastor Nicole' Ferry

Pastor Nicole' Ferry :: (505) 662-5151 ext 104

“I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:3-6

My gratitude is great indeed to be back in the land of Enchantment joining the people of God who are at work being God’s hands and feet in the world! During my first tour of Los Alamos I was blessed to be a Guidance Counselor at the Middle School as well as Bethlehem’s church secretary. Both positions allowed me to fall in love with this land and this people of God. I am originally from Knoxville, Tennessee and was baptized and confirmed at Christus Victor Lutheran Church. I earned my Bachelor of Social Work degree from the University of Tennessee and later my Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland. After discerning a call to ordained ministry that began when I was a child I entered the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg and graduated in May 2012 with a Masters of Divinity degree.

I have been blessed to work primarily with youth in the public and non-public sectors throughout my professional career as well being on the staff of Evangelical Lutheran Church in Frederick, Maryland, First English Lutheran Church in Baltimore, Maryland, New Hope Lutheran Church in Columbia, Maryland and of course here at Bethlehem. I was ordained at New Hope Lutheran Church in July 2012 and installed at Bethlehem in August 2012. I am so excited to be called as Bethlehem’s Youth, Family and Education Pastor!

I am also blessed to have been married to Ray Ferry since 1985 and to be mom to my amazing children Noah and Morgan. These “Ferrys” keep me laughing and have loved and supported me in ways that can only come from God! They are my biggest fans and often my partners in hiking, cycling, swimming, and just hanging out in general.

Pastor Scott Thalacker joined Bethlehem in July 2018 and serves as co-pastor with Pastor Nicolé Ferry. He places emphasis on worship, preaching, and education. A native of western South Dakota, he holds a B.A. in Philosophy from Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD, and a Masters of Divinity from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. Prior to arriving in Los Alamos with his wife Lindsay and daughter Elise, he served as a pastor at congregations in Wisconsin and Utah after being ordained in the ELCA in 2010. He is overjoyed to serve alongside such a caring and thoughtful assembly as Bethlehem and looks forward to what adventures the Holy Spirit will lead us on together.
