A Brief History of Berlin Congregational Church
The Berlin Congregational Church was founded in 1775. The original meetinghouse was dedicated in 1774. In 1848 there was a fire and a new meetinghouse – the present-day Worthington ridge church – was established. Over the centuries we have continually expanded and remodeled the building to accommodate and adapt to the needs of the community.

Mission and Outreach
Our Board of Mission and Outreach is a very active part of church life here at BCC. They suggest benevolent projects to the church and follows through to their completion. We work in cooperation with other churches and organizations. We keep the church informed of our missionary work at home and abroad.
Our yearly mission projects included; Food baskets at Thanksgiving and Christmas time that support our community food bank and backpacks filled with school supplies for youth in need. We also reach out to those who restricted in their travel by visiting with them once every three months with flowers or special gifts. We also have an active card ministry for birthdays and prayers for those who need to be reminded that they are being thought of.
