I joined Mt. Moriah Lutheran Church in 2007 after moving here from the Chicago area. I am honored to have served in this church council numerous times, although this is my first time serving in the president's position. My husband and I were not blessed with children, but I have always been an animal lover, and I have two little dogs now to keep me company since my husband passed away. I am always happy to help in any way I am able, so please do not hesitate to leave a message with the church secretary and I will be very happy to talk with you.

Paula Hasty - Youth Director

 

Paula Hasty has been our Youth Director at both Mt. Moriah and Salem Lutheran Church since December of 2016. She grew up in New Berlin, WI ( a suburb of Milwaukee) where she became

a certified Child Care Teacher, following her Travel Agent certification. Paula is also in the CSIS Church Council.

Having grown up with post missionary, Christian parents who were very active serving at church, she learned to appreciate church work, team work, and the importance of sharing the Gospel. Being so close to Milwaukee and Chicago gave her an appreciation for diversity as a gift from God that too many people fail to recognize.

Her passions include: her family, teaching, babysitting, photography, journaling, writing, and traveling. Apart from these things, Paula's favorite past times are walking in nature and seeing the hand of God, and playing with her pets which include: 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 bunnies!

Paula is married to Pastor Mark Hasty and together they have 3 daughters: Hailee, Serena and Alyson.

Paula's motto is: Live in the JOY of the Lord! J = Jesus first, O = Others second, Y = You third.
