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
Pastor Ralph Wolfe
Heights Lutheran Church proudly welcomes all.
Our building and congregation support the
local community providing meeting space and
resources that make a big community impact.
During worship services on Sunday morning,
as well as community gatherings during the
week, the building serves as a safe space
for people to share in fellowship and in faith.
The sanctuary, meeting rooms, and parish hall
of Clinton Heights Lutheran Church see a high
volume of activity throughout the week.

Zoning & Variance Committee meets in our

meets in our education wing.
• Dance Groups – No less than
8 local dance groups use our parish hall to
gather and dance. Scandy Dancers, Vintage
Dancers, Columbus Folk Dancers, Scottish Folk
Dancers, English Country Dancers, Selo Dancers,
Square Dancers, and Swing Dancers. Our wooden
floor and low rental fee give them something
to dance about.

• CRC Kids Club – An income based
after school and summer youth program.
• Piano Recitals – Several local
piano teachers use our Sanctuary to host recitals.

• Candidates Night – During the
local election cycle, CHLC hosts a candidates
night where local candidates running for office
can meet the community and share their vision
as well as some company and a bowl of chili.
• Community Meal

our parking lot serves as overflow parking
for parents as they attend student events.

As the wear and tear on the building continues,
the Church Council at Clinton Heights has
determined that a few key repairs need to
be made in order to remain a valuable asset
to our congregation and the Clintonville community.
1. Roof fixes costing approximately $5,000
will address issues over the education wing
and Sanctuary to prolong the life of the roof
and prepare for full replacement sometime
in the future.
2. Lighting repairs will cost approximately
$12,000 to replace ALL Sanctuary fixtures
with LED bulbs. The current fixtures use 250
watt halogen bulbs and have damaged (melted)
3. Painting the Sanctuary walls will cost
$3,000; and painting the exterior Education
Wing will cost $5,000.
