History of the First Congregational Church
Larry Berkson has researched, written and published a two volume History of The First Congregational Church. He has very generously donated the results of his endeavor to our church so that anyone wishing to own these volumes may do so. All proceeds will be deposited in the newly established Quintin B. Berkson Memorial Fund at First Congregational. The interest from this account is to be used for the benefit of the church. This fund is in memory of Larry and his wife Susan’s son Quintin, who passed away at a young age.
The two-volume set will be sold at $35 and can be purchased after church during Fellowship Hour or by contacting Susan Bleckmann to reserve your copies. Ω
The first Sunday of the month is a potluck brunch. The third Sunday is hosted by the Dorcas Guild. The remiaing Uundays, coffee and punch. Of course food items will always be welcome. Clean-up help following Fellowship is always needed and appreciated.
A new Bible study on the Gospel according to Luke begins Wednesday, August 1, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Pilgrim Room. We will be going through the entire Gospel using Engaging God’s Word as a study resource. Our study always includes a time of prayer and good discussion. Join us. Ω
