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. We depend on your food donations for the remaining Sundays. We also always appreciate your support in serving and cleanup. Think about helping out in this way. Ω
