Our Pastor & Staff

Running a church is generally accomplished through the combined efforts of paid staff and volunteers. At First Congregational UCC we have small staff who handles the day to day operations of the church and a large dedicated group of congregation members who carry out the work and ministry of the church.

Minister – Rev. Kristal M. Klemme
Rev. Kristal M. Klemme has been the pastor at First Congregational United Church of Christ since October of 2017. She and her husband Phil reside in Sheboygan Falls. Their three children – Eric, Allison, and Isaac are all in college.
Kristal is a graduate of Lakeland University with a Bachelors of Arts in Religion and a minor in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy. She earned her Master of Divinity at Chicago Theological Seminary. She is passionate about sharing God’s love with ALL people, and being the hands and feet of God in our world.
Kristal enjoys spending time with her family, playing the piano and singing, eating great food, reading, and practicing yoga.
