Sun and Fun Day

Sun and Fun! a community celebration of the environment, solar, and sustainability was held Saturday, August 22 from 10-3 pm here at Second Congregational Church on Hillside Street in Bennington.

As sometimes happens at summer picnics, you can get a little …

“Craving Radiance”- John 6: 24-35– Aug. 3, 2015

  In weather like this, it’s easy to put a perfectly good loaf of bread in the breadbox one day and find it covered in luxurious green the next morning.
