The Session of Lutz Community Church (LCC) is pleased to announce that Rev. Dr. Cheryl Duke will be joining us as Stated Supply Pastor, in a temporary, part-time ministry relationship. You may remember that Pastor Cheryl preached the sermon at our worship services in late May. The Search Committee and Session were impressed by her preaching style and content and her pastoral experiences spanning over 30 years. Pastor Cheryl possesses a heart for discipling and empowering the congregation to strengthen our faith and our witness to the unchurched which align very well with the general trajectory of LCC. Pastor Cheryl has demonstrated experiences to lead several congregations with size similar to LCC through interim ministry, mission studies, and redevelopment which are all vital assets for LCC. She is well equipped to lead LCC through development and completion of a Mission Study, which is required prior to seeking the next installed Pastor.
As part-time Pastor,
Rev. Duke’s responsibilities are intentionally reduced compared to a full-time
pastor. Responsibilities include lead worship and preaching, coordinate
ministry responsibilities related to worship planning and preparation with paid
staff and volunteers, foster organizational leadership that culminates into a
Mission Study, and pray for members and community. In addition,
responsibilities include moderate session and congregational meetings, and officiate
the sacraments, weddings, and funerals. Pastoral care for hospital and shut-in
visits will continue to be primarily provided by deacons, elders, and
other members of the congregation who are called to this ministry. At the
request of the elders, the Pastor will provide visitation/counseling for
emergency or crisis situations.
Pastor Cheryl’s work with us will start on July 17, 2022 for a duration of one year. At the conclusion of one year, both parties could agree to continue the ministry relationship if the search for the installed Pastor is not completed.
Our church is a place where all are invited in to discover who God is and the purpose He has for all of us in His story. We think church should be one of the most engaging and exciting places on the planet—a place where people of any and all backgrounds can experience a God who is real and relevant in their lives today. And that's exactly what we want to help you do!
If you've been following God your entire life, you're welcome here. If you're new to faith, you're welcome here. If you're not really sure you believe in God at all, you're welcome here. No matter where you are on the road to faith, we want to walk alongside you. Our hope is that as you join us on the journey, you'll discover a God who is active, alive, and at work in your life.
Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. We invite you to experience what the gospel means both intellectually and relationally at one of our Sunday worship services. You can engage with others and find places for your whole family to connect. We hope that through visiting with us, you will experience the hope, love and joy that comes from a community of people who love Jesus.
