Sunday, July 14th  
Dear Friends,
We will be holding an informational gathering on Sunday, July 14th, after morning service in the Main Hall.
This will allow us time to have multiple Boards and Committees bring the group up to date as to where we are within our present journey together.
In this time of discernment, we want to be sure we are all given ample time for questions and concerns.
If you are not able to make the meeting and/or have specific questions you would like addressed at the meeting, please contact Marcia Merritt (Co-Chair Deacons) or myself prior.
Thank you ALL for your continued dedication to God's House.
Jim Welsh – Moderator
Friends, as mentioned in Jim's letter the Deacons were in the process of reviewing the profiles and that has now been concluded. Rev. Bradley J. Bergfalk has been contacted and has accepted to be our Interim Minister. Rev Bradley J. Bergfalk will begin Interim Pastoral Ministry on September 3, 2019 at the First Congregational Church of Bethel, Connecticut. Until that time, the Deacons will be in charge of our Sunday Services. 
Rev Bradley J. Bergfalk will be doing a sermon on August 4, 2019 and officiating communion at FCCB. To listen to some of his sermons go to First Congregational Church of Litchfield web site.
