About Our Church

Litchfield United Church of Christ Congregational began as a hearty group of pioneers from Connecticut who came to the Western Reserve to start a new life. They built homes and established farms in the newly founded Litchfield Township of Medina County. They were hard-working, independent, and self-reliant. They also cared for their neighbors, organized a school, built a church and a community.

Now, more than 180 years later, as a congregational church, we continue to live out the values of our pioneering ancestors - community, compassion, foresight and self-reliance - all within the Grace of God.

Whether ministering to the sick, caroling to shut-ins, giving food and aid to the needy, or just accommodating the weary traveler during Sunday morning worship; Litchfield United Church of Christ is here for everyone. Our towering white spire is a beacon of hope, help, and glory to all who hear the ringing of it's carillon.

Our Statement of Purpose

The purpose of the Litchfield United Church of Christ Congregational shall be to share the Word of God, in its various forms, with members of our church family, our community, and the world.

We endeavor to follow the example of Christ in reaching out to all persons regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or ethnicity. We believe that all persons have sacred worth, equal in the eyes of God.

We know that we live in a time of change as did Jesus in his day; and, centered in Christ, we seek to respond in love to the challenges that present themselves.
