FCCL'S COVID-19 RESPONSE
Updated as of April 3rd, 2020
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, on March 22 we changed our regular in-person worship service on Sundays, to have a small group of essential persons for live streaming in compliance with the Governor’s executive order 7H (while subject to 7D) which recognizes houses of worship as an essential service (while limiting attendance to less than 50 persons) during this crisis.
Why our doors are open:
The safety of our congregants and that of our overall Litchfield community is of utmost importance to us. While we are doing our part to help bring this pandemic to an end, we are doing our best to provide families encouragement and a sense of normalcy during this challenging time. Although we are not encouraging anyone to come, and want everyone to utilize our live stream, our doors are always open for anyone who needs to pray and worship, as we are managing strict social distancing and sanitizing guidelines.
We will remain updated on all executive orders and will make changes accordingly to stay in compliance.

What to Expect
It often takes courage to visit a church for the first time. We want you to know how much we value visitors and want you to feel welcome and comfortable. Visitors will never be singled out or asked to introduce yourself, but we hope you will join us for coffee/snacks in the fellowship hall immediately following worship. Our vision is to be an engaging Christ-centered community with compelling worship, intentional discipleship, focused mission, and a desire to live more generously. We hope you find that here and look forward to meeting you soon!
