Ninth Full-Time Pastor
On September 22, 2009, Pastor Eric Hiner was installed as Christ Lutheran’s ninth full-time pastor.
Narthex Remodel and Welcome Center
In an effort to be more welcoming to visitors, Christ Lutheran performed an extensive remodel of its narthex area in September 2009. This remodel included the construction of a welcome center for better greeting of visitors.
Pastor Hiner got right to work in his time as Christ Lutheran’s pastor by involving us in the ChristCare program. This program works through small groups to facilitate care for each other and work on specific projects.
Christ Lutheran replaced its thirty-something year old Allen organ with a brand new Johannus organ in August 2010. The new organ was dedicated on Reformation Sunday, October 31, 2010 and should serve Christ Lutheran well for years to come.
New Constitution and Governance Model
Christ Lutheran also adopted a new constitution on October 31. This constitution inaugurated a new streamlined governance structure. Multiple boards were eliminated with governance now handled through a Spiritual Leadership Team of the pastor and elders and a Mission and Ministry Team to handle administrative concerns.
