We started to work with CLC in November of 2016, at a time when they were vacant (i.e. without a pastor). Salt of Earth Communities is helping the members of Christ Lutheran Church set themselves up as a church that “engages the everyday” in their community. Throughout this partnership Pastor Larry and Pastor Kelly have been preaching and leading worship, and have also been leading two discipleship Huddles that are preparing them to develop and lead Missional Communities in Summit County.
We are also providing guidance through their Call process as they look ahead to their next pastor. We pray for discernment as CLC takes the next steps to Call a new pastor—that God will lead them to the person He has in mind for them—and we pray they find someone who will continue to lead the people of this congregation to be families on mission.
