Berries are one of the easiest things to freeze.  I like to freeze them individually on cookie sheets.  That way I can take out just how many I need, whether it is four cups for a pie or just a handful for a smoothie.
First you need to sort through the berries, picking out any twigs, leaves, bugs,  whatever is hiding in there.
Then lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet.  Put into the freezer for a couple of hours or until the berries are froze solid.
After they are frozen remove from freezer and  run a spatula under them to loosen them from the tray.

 Then just pour them into freezer containers.  I like to use these quart size ones.  They are available at any department store and come five in a package for under $3.  And they are reusable every year!
 All berries freeze well this way.  I do my strawberries, blueberries and raspberries the same way.

And these containers fit well into the door space of my freezer so they are easy to grab when you want all three kinds of berries for a  berry smoothie!

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family.  By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.  
Hebrews 11:7
