Our church is about its people and how we can reach out to others so that they, too, can "know Christ and make Him known". No matter where you are in your spiritual walk, whether you are young or old, rich or poor, single or married, you are always welcome at CLC.
Pastor Gatoski continued to serve our congregation until October 1955, at which time Pastor Merill Herder became our pastor until 1961. Pastor Dennis Schlossin then served as pastor for the next 30 years until his retirement in October 1991. Druing that time Pastor Thomas Aadland served as assistant pastor until 1990, when he became Senior Pastor of the American Association of Lutheran Churches (AALC) in September of 1999. Pastor Michael Main took over in January 2000 and in July of 2005, we welcomed the addition of Chris Schroder who was the Associate Pastor until May 31, 2012, when he left to shepherd his own church in Holstein, IA.
CLC has been blessed since its inception with pastoral leaders who have been grounded in a biblical christian foundation. Through the years, our pastors have shared this evangelical and Christ-focused message in their sermons and Bible studies. We are so thankful to have these wonderful teachers and leaders.
