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 Philip reside in Sheboygan Falls with their children Eric (23), Allison (17), and Isaac (16).
