Hello Clinton Heights Family and Friends,

Even as we gradually have more and more in person worship experiences, we plan to make the video stream of our worship services available for folks who cannot come in person because of health concerns or distance. Below are links that will allow you access to the past two weeks’ services. May it be a blessing to you during these times of waiting for God's healing to occur ...

The Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost


Covid19 Virus Update: Out of an abundance of caution, with guidance from the Southern Ohio Synod, the health department of Ohio, and various other scientific writings, the church council remains hesitant to have our congregation gather in person inside of our sanctuary for worship. This decision will be in effect through October.
While the above is still in place, we have found that worshiping in person outside on our parking lot has been a real blessing to folks who gather. The “once-a-month” services over the summer have increasingly grown in numbers. For this reason, we are making two changes for September and October:
1. We will meet twice a month, on September 6 & 20 and October 4 & 18. We meet on the parking lot just east of our building at our regular worship time, 10:00 a.m. If, by noon the day before, rain is in the forecast for Sunday morning, we will postpone the outdoor worship until the following Sunday. All services, indoor or outdoor, will continue to be streamed on Facebook Live and downloaded and shared as they have been.
2. We will begin to share Holy Communion at these in person services. You can participate either by bringing your own elements – a slice, loaf or piece of bread for you and your household along with some wine or grape juice – or you can receive a wafer from me as I distribute them from a sanitized metal chalice, prepared in a clean environment and only touched by me with thoroughly washed and/or gloved hands. According to Lutheran Theology, both Jesus’ body and blood are present in each element of communion, so you can experience his true presence by taking either or both the bread and wine.

God's peace and blessings to you!

Pastor Ralph

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

The mission of Clinton Heights Lutheran Church is summed up in our initials - CHLC: Calling Hearts to the Living Christ. Through worship, Christian Education, fellowship and service, our church family is committed to reaching out to all who yearn to  experience God's presence in their lives. On the pages of this website, you will see much of the programmatic ministry that goes on within and outside of our walls, but what I have experienced is that the real strength of Clinton Heights is its people. We are a group of friendly, welcoming Christians, forgiven by the grace of God, eager to share the joy that we have experienced with others.

While our building may have a few confusing twists and turn, our mission to Call Hearts to the Living Christ is clear cut. Please know that you are welcome to join us for any and all of the activities and gatherings of our congregation, and may God bless you this day.

 Pastor Ralph Wolfe
