Our Office Manager, Julie Rapp, recently accepted a new Marketing position that will allow her to fully maximize her creative skills. She will conclude her time at The Church at Litchfield Park on Tuesday, May 11. Julie shared, “Working at CLP has been an uplifting and spiritually fulfilling experience.

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. We have increased the capacity in the sanctuary from 75 to 125 (excluding those who are serving/leading in worship) and have removed 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
