Concord Liberty welcomes God’s call to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to the world that God so loves. We invite you to join us as we share our resources, time, energy, and creativity in serving others. We see the mission field beginning at our doorstep, reaching out into our community, our nation, and the world.
CLPC serves our local community through outreach programs in addition to responding to immediate needs that become critical throughout the year.
Some projects are on-going but there is always the new opportunity that becomes known to us. We make monthly contributions of our “First Fruits” to our local food pantry. Members of our congregation are involved in helping with the food distribution. Meals are also prepared which are taken to a local neighborhood distribution center to be shared. Christmas donations of gifts cards, hats, scarfs, and mittens as well as a Samaritan’s Purse packing party are yearly projects. Appreciation snack and fruit trays are packaged each year and delivered to our local schools, fire houses, and local and State police. A worship service for a local Senior Living facility is provided by members of the congregation.

Chop Point Camp, Woolwich, Maine
David Wilkinson grew up in the CLPC church. He is the Director of Chop Point Camp, a summer outreach camp in Woolwich, Maine. David and his wife, Bethany, 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. Campo is a camp that was started and is maintained by Chop Point to serve the poorest of the poor children in Nicaragua through its use by mission trips and local missionaries.
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 have traveled to Maine over Memorial Day Weekend to help with camp preparation. Projects have included painting, roofing, cleaning, and a variety of other tasks. Professional expertise among the team has included extensive electrical upgrades, landscaping/hardscaping, and carpentry.
World Impact – Wichita Kansas
Carolyn and Dan Hennings began their ministry with World Impact in Chester, PA. (Carolyn grew up in CLPC, daughter of West 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, 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. There are numerous TUMI sites in many countries, churches, ministries, and even prisons with a total student body in excess of 3000.
Capstone, their main seminary curriculum continues to be translated into more languages. This is also true of the discipleship course, Fight the Good fight which is being used in places like India, Eastern Europe, Africa, and Central and South America.
