Sanctuary Seating Update

Thank you so much for being respectful of and patient with the implemented protocols on campus. It has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Our hope is always to keep people as safe as possible when they are on our campus. We would still appreciate it if you could help us out by registering your attendance in advance using the link provided on the website. Also, beginning this Sunday we are increasing the capacity in the sanctuary from 75 to 125 (excluding those who are serving/leading in worship) and removing the tape and signs from the pews. Facial masks will still be required and we ask that you continue to assist our deacons and ushers with social distancing measures.


Thank you and blessings,

Pastor Lynne

Lecture Series - Luke Air Force Base

Created from desert scrub and farmland in less than a year, construction on Luke Air Force Base began March 31, 1941. Named Luke Field after World War I hero and triple ace, Frank Luke Jr., some of the base’s first class of pilots went on to fly during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Over the years, Luke has been home to fourteen primary fighter aircraft, graduated over 60,000 students, and accounted for millions of training flight hours. Of the pilots who trained at Luke Field, a number became aces, including the all-time United States leading ace, Maj. Richard I. Bong. Most years, Luke Air Force Base is home to more fighter aircraft than any other base in the United States.


The Church at Litchfield Park, in partnership with the Litchfield Park Historical Society, will host Luke Air Force Base historian, Mr. Rick Griset as he highlights some of the of the history of the base on Tuesday, April 27 at 10:00 a.m. in Souers Hall. He is the author of the Images of America Book, Luke Air Force Base, which draws from extensive historical photographic archives and narratives from those with a deep knowledge of the base to create a visual flight through Luke’s history. Copies of his book will be available for purchase.


This is a hybrid in-person/online presentation. To attend in person, visit the church website to register or email events@LPHSMuseum.org to confirm your spot and receive a Zoom link to watch online.
