First Congregational Church of Berlin
The First Congregational Church of Berlin was founded on October 13, 1798. The original meetinghouse on the Old Brookfield Road burned in 1838 and the church, now standing at Berlin Corner, was built. The church is an active participant in the community, donating to local food shelves, providing meals for the Good Samaritan Haven and sponsoring families in need. The Sunday school participates in Operation Christmas Child and post-Irene a clothing drive was held and money was collected for the victims. The current members and friends, together with Dereen Vanderlinde-Abernathy, expect to continue providing a vibrant and welcoming place of worship for the Town of Berlin.
