Meet Our Staff

Rebekah Tarras


Pastor Rebekah is a graduate of Luther College and Luther Seminary and has been the lead pastor for SJLC since January of 2004. When she's not occupied with her pastoral duties you might find her playing with one of her 4 grandchildren, digging in the dirt in her gardens, experiementing in the kitchen or creating something with fabric.

Jenny Nieman

Minister of Faith Formation

Jenny uses her training in youth and family ministry and her passion for kids and families to oversee all of the faith formation ministries at SJLC.  A lifelong member of SJLC, Jenny can often be found hanging out with kids including 4 of her own.

Abby Wash


When our church runs smoothly, it’s because of the secretary. Handling a huge number of responsibilities and tasks, the secretary is one of our most prominent team members. When she isn't keeping the office running you can find her with her 6 kids enjoying camping, soccer, football or family time.

Roxie Wetterau


Roxie provides support and leadership as the church treasurer. When not keeping the books in order, you might find Roxie in her gardens, behind a camera or on the stage.  And most likely, she'll have a cup of coffee close by.

Marsha Martens


When it comes to dedication, Marsha is the definition.  She has been leading music for worship at SJLC for over 50 years.
