Faith Community Church in Waupaca recently added Erin Eller as the new children’s ministry director.
Eller began volunteering at Faith in 2006, assisting in the nursery when her daughter was too timid to be left alone during church services.
Her involvement with children’s ministry started there and led to teaching and assisting in other areas of the ministry and church.
Eller has also been an active member of the Waupaca community with organizations such as Waupaca Humane Society, Waupaca Preschool, Relay For Life, Cub Scouts, Girls Scouts, Waupaca Kickers, and as a youth soccer coach.
Prior to accepting the position at Faith, Eller earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing and worked at Gusmer Enterprises as a marketing and product manager.
While it was an extreme change of pace for her, she’s thrilled to have this new opportunity in ministry.
“All of my church and community involvement has given me many opportunities to interact with kids and families. I absolutely love watching children’s personalities develop and respect their zest for life. I find great joy in families that have a deep togetherness in their faith, care, and love for one another – they are my inspiration,” she said.
Erin and her husband, Jon, have two children, Zach and Chloe. Together they enjoy tWaupaca’s hiking trails, lakes, camping, and their home in the woods, as well as traveling, playing lots of soccer, and watching Packers games.
As Children’s ministry director at Faith Community Church, Eller will be overseeing the Nursery And Children’s Ministries. This includes three Sunday services as well as a Wednesday night program during the school year. Each program is comprised of dedicated and qualified leaders, engaging and fun activities for children, and a curriculum that focuses on the teachings and practical application of the Bible.
Wedesday night programming at Faith kicks off Sept. 5, with grades K-8 running from 6-7:30 p.m. and the high school program running from 7:30-9 p.m. There is also a class for adults that will run 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Faith Community Church is located at N2541 County K in Waupaca.
