Meet Pastor Erin Coutts
Pastor Erin was called to First Lutheran in the summer of 2018. She grew up in southeastern Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin after studying English literature and Classics. In college, she was very involved with a campus ministry group, which gave her experience and skills that helped lead her to seminary. She attended Luther Seminary in St. Paul and received her Master of Divinity in 2018 with a concentration in Children, Youth, and Family Ministry after completing an internship in Austin, Minnesota.
This is Pastor Erin's first call, and she is passionate about liturgy, theology, helping people engage with scripture, and the inclusion of children in the life of the church.
In her free time, Pastor Erin loves learning and creating. She is an avid reader and podcast listener as well as enjoying knitting, crocheting, music, baking, and playing board games with friends.
