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

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 will be held on Sunday, January 26 following worship and will include a potluck lunch. Please bring your favorite dish to share. For those of you responsible for preparing Annual Meeting reports, those reports are due no later than January 12 to Rev. Dave. ΩΩ
