Fast Facts: Light of Christ Church is a relatively young congregation. Pastor Dan Gerken is currently serving as the interim pastor of the church. His father, who just recently retired, was the church’s second pastor, and he served there for 20 years. The church has a very talented music ministry and an active care ministry that includes a community garden. Light of Christ’s general demographic is primarily Gen Xers with a few Millennials that attend regularly. The majority of the members commute to Seattle, WA for work, which makes recruiting volunteers a challenge.
The church is looking for a full-time pastor, and as a result there are members that are becoming less engaged and committed. The church is asking the Holy Spirit for wisdom as they follow God’s plan for their church. However, it is a struggle to keep the congregation engaged and committed while they wait for the new shepherd God has in store for them.
Please pray for guidance, wisdom, and strength as Light of Christ goes through this challenging time. Pray for a collective peace that passes human understanding so that those that are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and/or lost in this process can know that God is in control, and that He will lead the church through this season.
