Director of Children's Ministries

There is an old saying “If you love what you do then you never work a day in your life”. That is exactly how I feel about the Children’s Ministry here at First Church.   There is nothing more rewarding than introducing children to Jesus and watching them as they grow in their faith.

I grew up in Waterbury, CT and moved to Appleton in 1999. I studied to be a paralegal and received my Associates Degree in Paralegal from Lakeshore Technical College.  I currently am working towards a Bachelor's degree in Christian Ministry from Crown College.

My husband Norm and I have been blessed to raise 7 children, Kurt, Mathew, Merisa, Nicole, Joseph, Paul and Robert. We also love to spend time with our 4 grandchildren, Bree, Mason, Weston, and Madison.  I love to travel, crochet, knit, and I make really awesome paper beads!

I started at First Church in 2009 as a teacher in the LOGOS program.  I then started teaching Sunday School and knew that this is where I loved to be.  I was the Decorating Director for VBS from 2010-2012.   I began Kidz Konnection on Wednesday nights in 2013, and am passionate about the messages of being faithful, trusting in God, and serving.  After job sharing with the previous Christian Ed Director, I was presented with the opportunity to become the new program director. I happily accepted in May of 2013.   My vision for this ministry is simply to make Christian Disciples by teaching children and adults to walk faithfully and genuinely in Jesus Christ’s footsteps.  The first way to do that is to bring families closer together into a Christ centered relationship.  We offer many opportunities for all families to come together to achieve this.  Family fun nights, volunteering in your children’s classrooms, and Vacation Bible School are just a few of the ways. 

I welcome all questions, comments, and suggestions about our program. Feel free to contact me at cladewig@appfumc.org, or (920) 734-2677. Why not stop by my office for a visit!  I’d love to hear from you.
