Katie grew up in Hibbing, Minnesota, and was raised Catholic. She is married to Jeff, and they have three sons, Mitch (16), Joel (7) and Grant (6).
Jeff grew up Lutheran and they found Zion together around the time they were married.
We loved the welcoming and joyful feel of Zion, and how friendly the congregation is. There are many opportunities for the kids (and adults ) to get involved, such as volunteering in the community, singing in choirs, participating in the Christmas program, etc.
Katie got involved with the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) organization at a time when she needed it most, and that organization helped her greatly in her faith journey.
Katie has just begun her third year of teaching Sunday School at Zion, and this year is teaching a group of kindergarten students at the 10:30 hour.
