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

Help Needed

Our annual Ash Wednesday service will be held on Wednesday, February 26 at 7 p.m.

Ash Wednesday
Annual Meeting

The Diaconate needs your help! With folks traveling to warmer climes and those involved in the choir, ushers are needed to help out during services.

Greeting and ushering is not difficult, in fact it affords you the opportunity to “meet and greet” your church family.

If you want to lend a hand, be assured it is a very pleasant task that takes really little effort but is very rewarding. It also gives you the opportunity to give back.

Please see Minni Plante or John Johnson if you can assist in this way or for more information.

The church’s annual meeting was held on Sunday, January 26. For those of you who did not receive an Annual Report and would like one, please contact the church office, Rev. Dave or the Pilgrim publishers, and we will mail one out to you. Church phone: 603 435-7471.
