Remember and Rejoice. Preserving the history gives us our sense of identity. Rediscover how your church came into being.  A church anniversary is an occasion to hear the stories of the past.

There are many ideas on the internet for celebrating church anniversaries.  Some of our churches have generously provided us with their worship service materials and ideas to help you plan that significant church anniversary.

“In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ you should tell them . . . Joshua 4:6-7
