Spring Green Community Church Staff
Kendall Harger, Pastor
I am pastor of Spring Green Community Church. My wife, Juli, and I moved here in January 2011 from Michigan to serve SGCC and the River Valley area. We love it here! I count it a privilege to come alongside people and help them navigate life, especially when it offers them unforeseen challenges, and to encourage others as they grow in their relationship with God. I love Jesus, playing classical guitar, biking, kayaking, and hiking.
Director of Spiritual Growth & Ministry Teams
My husband and I moved to Spring Green from Michigan in January of 2011. I recently (2020) began working part time at the church to focus on assisting and supporting spiritual growth and our various ministry teams. I love being here; Spring Green is such an active and unique small town, from theater, to architecture, to the natural beauty of the hills that surround! Together with my husband, Kendall, we have three boys, two daughters-in-law, and two granddogs. It brings me so much joy to see people grow closer to Christ; I have a passion for creating healthy spaces where people come together to explore, grow, and build relationship with Christ who is the Creator of all that is beautiful.
I live in the hills of Richland County; God blessed me with a home there a number of years ago as a single parent. My two children are grown now, and I have two grandsons and a granddaughter. I love serving at Spring Green Community Church, and I have worked here since 2006. It has been an adventure, and God is so very faithful. I love Jesus, reading, traveling, and meeting new people. Life is a journey; enjoy the moments.
I live in Spring Green with my sweet husband Todd and our four beautiful and talented children. God blessed me with this job one year ago after being an at-home mom for 13 years. Working here allows me to use some of my “non-mommy” skills while still providing the flexibility to be involved with my kids’ activities at school and keep things afloat at home. It is truly a gift from God.
Nora Moe, Co-custodian
I live in the Spring Green area with my dog Sasha and have been attending SGCC for almost 18 years. Besides serving as custodian, I help with child care on Wednesday's Friends Night, with the nursery, in the kitchen, and as a greeter on the First Impressions Team. I have four children, 14 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.
Favorite Bible verse: It's hard for me to choose; when I open my Bible, I like all the verses I see. One of the best is John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but will have eternal life."
Melissa Plumley, Co-custodian
I am originally from Rice Lake, WI. I lived in a small town by Prairie du Chien for several years, but have lived most of my life in Madison. I graduated from college there with a nursing degree and worked in healthcare for more than 28 years. I have three beautiful children: Adrianna (future husband Sam), Savaunnah, and one boy, Kaden. I also have two wonderful grandchildren, both boys: Amare, and Sammy. I bought my home in Arena in 2017, and love this area. The school system and sports programs there have been wonderful for my son.
