My wife, Emma, our daughter, Lila, and I moved to Cambridge in August of 2018. We are very excited to be a part of Christ Lutheran Church and its Pre-school.
As a pastor, I know there are a lot of questions out there concerning church. What brings a person to a church? Why enter our doors, one across the road, down the street or that one with family history? Why are beliefs so important and why do so many churches hold to different belief systems? Who is right? Who is wrong? Is there a right or is there a wrong?
I pray that you would give this church the opportunity to talk with you and your family about those very important questions. What you will hear is not religion according to Sam Biebert, my opinions or thoughts. That would only be one sinner telling another sinner how to live their life and there is nothing about me that makes me qualified to do that. Rather, everything must and will come from the Word of God who alone is “The way, the truth and the life.” John 14:6
I have had the priviledge of attending Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN and Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI where for 8 years I got to study the Bible and what it has to say to you, me, and all people. While that education definitely serves me well, it also does not mean I or any Christian ever reaches a point where they know it all, but at the same time, I would love nothing more than to share what God says in his Word as well as grow with you, where ever you may be, in your walk of faith.

Cliss’ teaching experience began in the fall of 1985 when she was assigned to teach grades K-4 at Peace Ev. Lutheran School in Granger, Indiana. She taught there until 2000 before she took a one year leave of absence to teach at Nozomi Lutheran School in Tsuchiura, Japan. After the completion of her year in Japan, she returned to Peace.
In 2001, Cliss left Peace to teach in Beijing, China. She taught middle grades there for three years. In 2005, she returned to the states to start Building Blocks for Life Preschool at Christ Ev. Lutheran Church in Cambridge, Minnesota.
She feels very blessed to have been given the privilege to share the love of Jesus with so many children and adults at home and abroad.
Cliss received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Dr. Martin Luther College in 1985. She has completed numerous summer school classes since 1985 to further her understanding of current educational strategies and philosophies.
