CLPC serves our local community through our scheduled outreach programs in addition to responding to needs that become critical throughout the year.
Spring and Fall community outreach days, provide the opportunity to serve in projects that include all age groups. While many of the service areas are ongoing, each year, there is the chance to incorporate new service projects as they become known to us. We can be found collecting food for several pantries, providing a crew to assist our partner with repair, upgrading of their mission headquarters, preparing meals to be taken to a neighborhood distribution site, conducting worship services at several senior living centers, preparing kits or toys for later distribution to international missions, prepare and distribute “appreciation” cookie trays to local teachers, police and fire companies.

CLPC’s own congregational sons and daughters serve in Woolwich Maine and Wichita, Kansas in two diverse ministries.
Chop Point Camp, Woolwich, Maine. David Wilkinson, who grew up in the CLPC church, is Director of Chop Point Camp, a summer outreach camp in Woolwich Maine. David and wife Bethany also teach at Chop Point School, where David also coaches soccer. Each year, David and Bethany plan and lead a mission trip to Campo Alegria, Nicaragua, for the juniors and seniors from Chop Point School.
As a Christian outreach camp, Chop Point seeks to present the claims of Christ to those who do not know Him and to strengthen the faith of those who do.
For many years, a group of CLPC church members and families travel over Memorial Day weekend to help with camp preparation. Projects include painting, roofing, cleaning, and carpentry. Professional expertise among the team has included electrical upgrades, landscaping/hardscaping, and carpentry.
World Impact – Wichita Kansas. Carolyn and Dan Hennings began with World Impact in Chester, Pennsylvania. (Carolyn grew up in CLPC, daughter of Wes and Jane Yoder.) In 1998, Dan and Carolyn transferred to Wichita, Kansas, to work with The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI), World Impact's national training arm. TUMI exists to equip leadership for the urban church, especially among the poor, to advance the Kingdom of God. The team produces curriculum, music, art, devotional resources, etc. that are being used around the world. Dan serves as Technology Director; Carolyn as graphic designer and desktop publisher.
In partnership with various ministries, TUMI has established a global network of sites where Christian leaders receive seminary-level training that is affordable, accessible, and culturally relevant. As of February 2018, there are 279 TUMI sites spread over 18 countries, in churches, ministries, and prisons; their total student body averages over 3000.
Capstone, their main seminary curriculum, is being translated into Telugu, Romanian, and Arabic; they are seeking a total of 10 Capstone translations. Their discipleship course, Fight the Good Fight of Faith, has already been translated into 11 languages, with 17 more in progress. Fight the Good Fight is being used in places like India, Eastern Europe, Africa, and Central and South America.
