Fitts Insurance is a leader in church insurance and the exclusive agent for the Insurance Board Plan for United Church of Christ, Presbyterian USA and Disciples of Christ denominations in our region. Currently the Insurance Board is celebrating their 30th Anniversary and has invited churches in those denominations to share what milestones they will be celebrating this year. The Insurance Board will pick 30 churches from those who share to celebrate with in some form and acknowledge their accomplishment with all the churches in this national program. The First Congregational Church of Stoneham is the first of Fitts’ churches to be selected and honored.
First Congregational Church of Stoneham, MA is turning 175!! This church played a significant role in the development of the town and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Their main celebration event will be a commemorative worship service, planned for October 18 of this year. The children will ring the church bell during the hour before our 10 a.m service–175 times! There will be musical events, historical exhibits, and tours of the “old town,” etc.
The church embarked on a new roof campaign at the beginning of this year. To acknowledge and help them celebrate, the Insurance Board has donated $1000 towards their new roof fund. Fitts’ Senior Vice-President George Hulme had the honor of telling the church the good news and then presenting them with the check.
