Faith Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We are one of five such congregations in Janesville, Wisconsin. The ELCA is a community of faith that shares a passion for making positive changes in the world. Our faith is built around a strong belief in God as made known to us in Jesus Christ. Through worship, service, and education, we practice our faith, grow our relationship with God and experience God’s grace in our lives. We also work hard to put our faith into action. In today’s complex world, we strive to make a difference in practical, realistic ways. We are currently living out our faith by beginning an intentional Latino evangelism and outreach in our neighborhood. Outreach is a big part of how we understand our calling, and happens in all age groups. All are welcome.

Favorite Bible Passage: Psalm 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God…”
About Me: My husband and I began our calls to Faith Lutheran in September 2009. This is the fifth congregation I have served. Being ordained is my second career; I still maintain my license as a registered nurse, in hopes that I can use it one day as a volunteer for Lutheran Disaster Relief. I moved to Minnesota from Ohio when I was ten, and though I have spent most of my life in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, my first nursing job was in Milwaukee, in ICU at St Luke’s Hospital. David and I are blessed with three delightful adult daughters and two sons-in-law. When I’m not at church, I enjoy anything outdoors: hiking, kayaking, riding my motorcycle, gardening, and photography. It is a joy to serve the good people of Faith!
Favorite Biblical image: If I try to picture Jesus, the image which always comes to mind is Jesus standing with his arms outstretched in a welcoming gesture, saying, “Come to me…”
About me: As a native Minnesotan who is recently transplanted to Wisconsin, I am appreciating both the similarities and the differences between the states. I am impressed by the friendliness of our community. Over the years as a pastor I have enjoyed many opportunities to be involved in the statewide and national work of the church, and in ecumenical work with other Christian groups. We can learn so much from the strengths of one another. I enjoy reading, woodworking, hiking and riding bicycle or motorcycle.
