150 Years of Ministry Recognition
Do you know how old your congregation is? When it was chartered? The life of a congregation tells a story about the people within. The anniversary of your congregation is indeed a time to celebrate and reflect on the ministry you have performed.
At Annual Conference, the Kansas Area Commission on Archives and History will recognize those congregations celebrating 150 years of ministry. If your congregation is celebrating 150 years, please contact either Jen McCullough, Kansas Area archivist, at 785-594-8380, or Rev. Larry Danforth, committee chairperson, at 785-743-2040 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if your congregation isn't yet celebrating 150 years, please stop by the Archives and History booth at Annual Conference and give your congregation’s charter date.
