Parenting is an important job. You want to get it right and we want to help!

Dexter UMC is preparing children for the road ahead.

Your children will learn that God loves them, they can trust him no matter what, and they should love others like Jesus loves them.

Denise Kasischke
Pastor of Children and Family Ministry

I oversee faith formation of children birth - 5th grade which includes programming for children birth - 5th grade and support and education for parents and families of this same age group. I also work with long range planning as part of the Ministry Lead team of Pastors. I love the variety of opportunities to work with people of all ages in multiple settings. There is never a dull moment growing faith in Jesus! I also love the people who attend and their stories.

 

Fun Fact: I climbed Mt. Whitney (highest peak in the continuous US 14,505ft.) in one day.
