Our Story

How it all started...

The future members who would make up Connecting Life Church began gathering in May 2018 in the Old South Range Middle School building in Greenford, OH.   The dream of Connecting Life Church has and continues to be to build a community of fully devoted Christ followers committed to the learning, living and love the word of God.

We believe:
 Found people Find People
Growing People Change
Saved People Serve People
Life is Better together

Connecting Life Church became a reality September 19, 2018 as we publicly launched in the Band Room.  With a full house, we began our journey of Connecting the Hearts of People to the Heart of God.  

The Lord was growing and we were outgrowing our facility.  With this concern we started to pray about buying a new building or partnering with an existing Congregation.  By God's grace, He partnered us into a partnership with a community of believers at Common Ground Community Church just five miles down the road on the same road!  
In March of 2020, as we exploring our future together the Covid-19 Pandemic hit the nation.  CLC immediately transferred our ministries online.  God was faithful through all the unknown as He joined us together through a Pandemic.  
Recognizing the needs of both Churches, it was clear that God could use us more effectively serving together.  Upon coming back to live services, CLC and CGCC agreed it was God's blessing for both of us to come back together.  Currently, CLC & CGCC gather together in weekly worship and are working together in ministry.   The future is bright for CLC!  We are excited about all the possibilities to reach the community of North Lima, Columbiana, Salem and beyond.  

Expanding the vision...

We now look to do the will of God in big and small ways!  
We long to be the hand and feet of Jesus and serve the needs of the community.   The vision isn't limited to our own capacity.  Our Vision is limitless as we obey God's leading!
