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

Everyone is cordially invited to come out to the Dorcas Guild’s Christmas Fair and Bake Sale Saturday, November 18, from 9 to 2.

The Grief Support Group will reconvene beginning Tuesday, September 19 at 11 a.m. in the vestry. Grief encompasses many life crises, i.e. death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job and even a home. It has to do with attachment and separation.

“Serious Answers to Hard Questions” is a 10-part video series – Bible Study/Discussion group, which will begin September 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Pilgrim Room.

If you are interested in either the support group or video series or have questions, please speak to Rev. Dave. Ω
