Pastor Darin’s favorite thing about being a pastor is doing baptisms. No, wait. His favorite thing about being a pastor is writing and preaching sermons. But, then again, his favorite thing about being a pastor is serving Holy Communion. And handing down the faith to middle schoolers on confirmation nights. And proclaiming the promise of the resurrection for people who are grieving the death of someone they love. Actually, he’s not sure what his favorite part of being a pastor is, because he enjoys so much of it. Over the years he has discovered that there are many ways that Christ breaks into the lives of people; and that he’s just lucky he gets to be a part of it in so many ways.
When he’s not preaching, baptizing, teaching, visiting, or all of that, he enjoys being with his wife and two daughters. (Say, did you know that his wife is a pastor, too?) He’s also glad that two Labradors, George, and Phoebe Wiebe, are part of his family, too. Email Pastor Darin email@example.com
Sherie Kruse received her Bachelor’s degree in Special Education from the University Of Whitewater. She was commissioned an Associate in Ministry of the ELCA on Epiphany, January 6, 2008.
As Education Ministry Assistant, her ministry has her reaching out to lots of people of all ages. Her office is never clutter free. There’s always a box or two on the floor, filled with interesting items for the next ministry event she’s planning; whether it’s thousands of filled plastic eggs for the annual Easter Egg Hunt or props to be used for teaching a class about one of our faith ancestors. For Sherie one of the greatest joys of her ministry is helping others experience Jesus’s love and grace and helping them share Jesus’s love with others.
Sherie and her husband Jack have two married children and three wonderful grandchildren. They also have two cuddly cats, Theo and Callie K. Kitten. One of Sherie’s favorite pastimes is being in the kitchen baking or preparing a meal for family and friends. She also likes to read and to crotchet, a skill passed down to her from her grandma.

I came to Our Savior’s in the Fall of 2014 and am still learning something new every day. I work with very patient co-workers. And I am so glad to be part of this team!
Prior to coming to OSLC, I worked in the Hospice Industry for about 13 years. I loved my work but wanted to be closer to home. And honestly, I couldn’t be happier to be here!
My daughter is 19 and out there making her way. Work-school-paying the bills etc. I am so proud of her.
My husband is a Journeyman (electrician). We both enjoy fishing, watching football, bowling, old black and white movies, new movies, all sorts of tv shows and playing with our pets, Lily our dog and Lugnut our cat. I also love to cook and I read a lot!
