Pastor Jess Graham
Welcome to Cuba City UMC! I’m Pastor Jess and I feel so blessed to be serving at CCUMC and look forward to meeting you. My hope is that, together, we can spread the love of Jesus to our community, region and world. I believe we will do that through intentional service, loving outreach, and joyful worship.
I grew up apart from the church and am a late-comer to faith. I spent about half my life in a very small farming community in Iowa along the Mississippi the other half I spent in the Cedarburg/Grafton area. My husband and I married in 2012 and have 2 little girls, Eden (5) and Eliana (3).
I spent 6 years in Cedarburg as the Middle School Youth Pastor. I love working with youth and families but also feel called to intergenerational ministries. I love seeing the strength created by crossing (and mixing) age barriers. Cuba City UMC is my first pastoral appointment. I look forward to what God has in store for our community! Let’s journey together.
Kristi serves as the church secretary and the youth leader. She grew up in northern Indiana but, has a deep love for Memphis, TN where she spent over 17 years before moving to the tri-state area when her husband’s job brought her here. She has served as a volunteer in the Methodist Church since 2001 in various roles and ministries. She wears many hats, including Mom to 2 boys, nurse at Epione, and hobby farmer with her goats and chickens. Kristi can also be found at the barn spending time riding horses and developing her riding skills over fences. She feels blessed to be a part of this congregation and sharing her love of Jesus with the others.
