Christ Castle Church takes its name from Psalm 18:2:

We would like to purchase Christ Castle Church in Connecticut, as our first physical church to hold Christian services every Sunday. All three buildings are included in our purchase: the beautiful stone sanctuary, Church Hall, and bell tower.
Christ Castle Church has plans for several ways to outreach to our community so we can have a greater impact in helping the poor, lost, and all those who can't help themselves. We have plans for a food bank, homeless ministry, and most importantly, Christian services every week. We seek to spread the love of Jesus Christ to lost souls.
This church, built in 1845, was designed by renowned British Architect Richard Upjohn who also designed the famous Trinity Church of Wall Street, NYC:

The church sits across the street from the historic train station that will soon contain the Train Museum, Beer Brewing company and oldest dinner in the nation.
The church is situated just 30 min south of the famous Berkshire vacation area that includes the music venue, Tanglewood: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g41639-d107514-Reviews-Tanglewood-Lenox_Massachusetts.html
