Web Ministry and Creative Arts

Lara Henry

Lara and her family moved from Alaska to the Fond du Lac area in fall of 2017 as her husband got accepted into the nursing program at Marian University. They immediately found a church family at Community Church. Lara and her husband Wes have been married for 9 years, have lived in 3 different states, Oregon, Alaska and now Wisconsin. Their 2 precocious children, ages 3 and 4, were born in Alaska. They all love to go on adventures and are always up for something new. Their ultimate adventure awaits as they are looking ahead to moving overseas and serve the Lord doing mission work in God’s timing.

Dan Farina

Born and raised in Madison, WI, my family moved to Fond du Lac in 1978. After graduation from High School in 1983, I went to the UW of Eau Claire for school. Then I got my Doctorate in Chesterfield, Missouri at Logan College near St. Louis. After graduation, I returned to Fond du Lac and began attending Community Church in 1991. During this time I did a number of odd jobs and one of those was working for Service Master cleaning Schreiner’s Restaurant. Currently, I work as a produce clerk for Festival Foods and provide Janitorial services here at Community Church. I have two gorgeous daughters, Kenzie and Callen, who live and work in St. Paul, Minnesota. Presently, I am pursuing an advance degree in the proper cleanup, sanitation, and removal of refuse.
