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
Our annual patriotic concert – “A Shining Light” – is set for Friday, May 31, 7 p.m. at our church. It will feature the Chancel Choir, JuBellation Handbell Choir and others. Light refreshments will be served. Mark your calendar for this much anticipated and exciting event for all ages. Spread the word and bring a friend! Ω
Flowers in church -- If you would like to have flowers placed on the altar in honor or memory of someone, please contact Linda Stasiak. Home 435-0083, Cell 856-6565. A single bouquet is $30.00 and a double bouquet will cost $50. If you wish to purchase your own flowers, you may do so but please notify Linda in advance so she can plan accordingly. Thank you for your support and cooperation. Ω
Children’s Day is May 19 with the wrap-up of the Sunday School year. The Sunday School will treat us to ice cream sundaes for Fellowship. It’s the Dorcas Guild’s usual week to provide food items, but please feel free to bring along your favorite salad or side dish.
We’re accumulating a few dishes again from your generosity for Fellowship and other events. Please check the kitchen counter for your serving dishes or plastic containers, so we can make use of the entire available work surface. Unclaimed items may make their way to the Dorcas Guild’s “Unique Boutique.” Ω
