Loretta England

Kids Ministry Leader

My name is Loretta England. I am married to my husband John. We have 7 children and 6 grandchildren. I’ve been the Children’s Ministry leader at Encounter Church since August 2021. 

Our family enjoys traveling, sports, concerts, Bible reading, and crafts. As a Children’s Ministry leader, I know serving the Lord is a privilege. I desire that each child will come to know God's amazing love in his/her life. I want to partner with parents to help the children of our Church and beyond become firm in the foundation of their relationship with Jesus Christ. I enjoy the work God has me in here. I am blessed to work with amazing volunteers. 

If you’re new or interested in our children’s ministry, don’t hesitate to contact me or introduce yourself to me in passing on a Sunday morning. I look forward to meeting you!


Maria Fettig

Nursery Kids Leader

My name is Maria Fettig and I have been attending Encounter Church since 2019. Although I grew up going to church, I rededicated my life back to Christ in 2016, after too many years of running from Him. Thankfully He is a redeeming God!  I enjoy reading, hiking, laughing, and a good piece of chocolate. I like getting to know people and cheering them on their journey through life.
