Rev. Cathy Weigand never wanted to be a pastor, so it is a surprise to everyone (including herself) that she has been in ministry for more than 25 years.
She and her husband, Rev. Mike Weigand, have raised 4 kids, two homemade and two adopted from the Philippines.
Cathy has served as a member of the Board of Ordained Ministry, she traveled with Love Prevails to General Conference in Portland, to protest the denomination’s discrimination of the LGBTQIA+ community, and works to balance the vows she has made to God in her marriage, her ordination, and at her kids’ baptisms.
Cathy has learned the importance of showing up and standing up. She is committed to this way of living her faith, even when she gets it wrong and even when her voice shakes.

Band / Worship Leader
Travis is our Band/Worship Leader for our 9:00 am worship service. He is a UW-Madison grad and a full time gigging musician around the state in a variety of bands. For Travis, music is a way to express the energy of caring for other people. On the deepest level, everyone wants to be connected and music allows you to feel that with the person next to you, even if you’ve never spoken.
