Familiar Face To Lead United Methodist Church

   A familiar face returned to Campbellsport at the beginning of July after a 20 year absence. Mary Balson is the new pastor at Campbellsport First United Methodist Church. Balson began serving the Campbellsport congregation on Monday, July 2.
In addition to being 20 years since Balson has been in town, this is also how long the church has gone without a regular pastor to serve them. This was a great fit for both.
Many may remember Balson in a much different role in the community. Mary (Zinkgraf) Balson was a physical education teacher and coach in the Campbellsport School District for 29 years. She is also the person who started girls' sports in the school district. In 2016, Balson had the distinction of being inducted into the Campbellsport High School Athletic Hall of Fame.
Now she is here in a much different role.

Balson became a licensed local pastor in 2009. Since then, she has served the following churches: The River Valley Charge of Pepin, Alma and Arkansaw, the Randolph and Courtland Charge, Wesley UMC in Sheboygan and Wesley UMC in Oshkosh.
