It’s a big year for the First Congregational Church in New Milford. The historic white church on the Village Green is celebrating its 300th anniversary. In addition, the church’s pipe organ marks its 50th year. A variety of programs will be offered throughout the year to mark the milestone.
The church’s Vacation Bible School program kicked off the celebration last month with a luau-themed family event. The program featured stations with arts, crafts, games and music. The evening culminated with a Hawaiian-inspired dinner. Future one-night VBS family events, which are open to the public, will be held Feb. 27 and April 30, and the church’s annual summer VBS will be held in June.
