Meet the Faith Staff


On February 4th, 2018, Faith celebrated our new covenant with Pastor Nicole Melara, who will be serving as Interim Pastor. Pastor Nicole has served Presbyterian and United Church of Christ congregations as both a solo pastor and as an Associate Pastor for Christian Education. She is currently in Presbytery sponsored training in Interim Ministry and hopes to use her time and talents helping congregations in transition. 


Our music director, Joan Nowaczynski, is a graduate of Alverno College with a degree in piano performance/pedegogy. She accompanies groups from various high schools in the area, "Women of Note", and the Milwaukee Choristers. She has also played for the Milwaukee Opera Company and the Florentine Opera Company, and teaches piano lessons. Joan is a wife, mom to 3 terrific kids, grandma to 6 wonderful grandchildren and a huge Green Bay Packer fan!


Our new administrative assistant, Lynn Claflin, is new to our Faith family as of March 2018! She recently retired from the City of Milwaukee where she served as a legal assistant. Lynn has two children and three grandchildren. Lynn enjoys baking, trying new restaurants with friends, fitness walking, vacationing, reading, going to movies, and Brewers baseball. 


Our nursery assistant, Samantha Foster, is a senior at UW Milwaukee and will be graduating in 2019. She hopes to become a social worker, working with children. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and 3 cats.
