Closure based on abundance of caution

After prayerful consideration and under the advice of our Bishop, the Congregational Council has decided to cancel public worship, as well as all in-person meetings and activities of the church. The duration of our church closure will last (tentatively) until Wednesday, May 17th. Please visit our website or the CLC Facebook page in the near future for updates on an anticipated opening date.

Kids off to College?

Being away from home is often hard, and a maintaining a connection with your church family can make a big difference.

Please consider forwarding their mailing address to our Outreach Ministry, so we can brighten their day with a kind word.

Prayer Ministry

The church office maintains a prayer list that is shared with the Prayer Chain Coordinator so that members of the Prayer Team can lift up those names in prayer.
 
We encourage adding you to add your loved ones to our list, which also includes other members of the congregation, first responders, military, and healthcare workers that work to keep us all healthy during the pandemic.
 
We also pray for families who are grieving the loss of a loved one. The church office will keep names on the list for one month and sympathies for grieving families for two weeks. After that amount of time, the name will be removed from the prayer list, unless the church office is contacted and asked to keep the name on the list. This is in an effort to have a current list of prayer needs.
 
If you would like to add a name to the prayer list or see that a name remains on the list, please contact the church office.
If you’re interested in serving on the prayer chain, please let Pastor Anne or Pastor Lou know.
