POMFRET --- The First Congregational Church of Pomfret is going up.
After the foundations were finished the walls soared last week.
By last month, the following were finished:
--- The masonry elevator shaft was completed.
--- The structural support walls in the basement were built
--- The footings and walls for exterior stairs, porch and ramps were completed
--- The septic and grease trap tanks were installed and waste line connected
 --- And the steel floor trusses were delivered.
Pomfret Congregational was founded, or “gathered” on Oct. 28, 1715. In 1832 it moved into the building in Pomfret Center that its members and neighbors knew and loved.  The congregation’s 300th anniversary was Oct. 28, 2015, and though no one will ever forget that terrible day of fire under a crisp December sky, the goal of the congregation now… is to dedicate to God their new church home on that day as they move forward with faith and dedication, serving God
