Staff and Leadership

We Are The Church Together

No one person can do the job of the church alone. Leadership in the church is more than a role in the church- it is an avenue to engagement in the church. Leaders are the listeners, encouragers, and inspirers. Leadership is not just a weekend position, it continues through the week.

Pastor Rusty May

CLC welcomes Pastor Rusty May as our interim Pastor!  

Pastor Rusty is a retired ELCA minister.  He attended Muhlenberg College in Allentown PA and then graduated from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia in 1978. He has answered the call to three perishes in NY before moving to Florida in 2004. He served at Messiah Lutheran in Cape Coral for twelve years.  His most recent call was as the interim at St. Peter, FMB. 


We welcome Pastor Rusty and his wife, PJ, here!


To be a synod parish deacon, you must complete a required course of theological study, a required practicum and are approved by the bishop to serve a local congregation at the authority of the pastor. This ministry is a volunteer ministry. They bring to the congregation their gifts and passions, being shared to the benefit of our congregation and the community.

Parish Nurses

The nurses assist with healthcare assessments and decisions when requested or needed. This means that when it is necessary, they will accompany a member to a doctor’s appointment. Our Parish Nurses work with our Pastor, local hospitals, social service agencies and the community for the wellness of our congregation.
