POMFRET, Connn. (AP) — A school and the town of Pomfret are helping congregants of a church heavily damaged by fire.
The Bulletin reports (http://bit.ly/1br8KED ) that the Rev. Thomas Crumb of the First Congregational Church of Pomfret led Sunday services for the 75-member congregation at the Pomfret School chapel.
Pomfret First Selectman Maureen Nicholson says the town has offered a copying machine and public works vehicles to help clear away debris from the site of the church, which dated to the mid-1800s. The congregation formed in 1715.
No one was injured in the Saturday fire.
Crumb said church trustees are in the early stages of forming a building committee and officials hope to conduct business as regularly as possible.
For example, Wednesday night Bible study will still take place in the church’s parsonage.
