Congregational Church of Thompson Displaced by Fire

Congregational Church of Thompson Displaced by Fire

A Connecticut congregation formed forty six years before the Declaration of Independence is getting much-needed support from other UCC faith communities after a devastating electrical fire heavily damaged the church's historic sanctuary Thursday night. Firefighters from three states spent hours battling the blaze at Thompson Congregational Church UCC on December 29, which started in the basement and spread up the back of the building.

"The Connecticut Conference has been keeping the members of the Thompson Congregational Church in our thoughts and prayers following the devastating fire last week," said Conference Minister The Rev. Kent Siladi. "We have reached out to the Rev. Jennifer Cook and the congregation to offer our support.  Area churches have joined together to offer assistance as well.  We will provide continuing support to the church as they discern their next steps.  Please hold them in your thoughts and prayers."
