Church History Displays        
  As part of our 25th anniversary celebration as a diocese, Bishop Iker is inviting each of our 56 congregations to prepare a tabletop display which will be set up in an area of the school. Each congregation will be given one 6’ table where a creative display of the history, vision, mission, buildings, and any other special characteristics you wish to share about your parish or mission can be displayed. On Saturday, there will be time allotted for everyone to view the displays each congregation sets up. To assist you in this project, a brochure has been prepared and is included in this packet advertising a special workshop on preserving your congregation’s history. This will assist you in preparing a display that you can bring to the diocesan convention. Might we suggest your priest and vestry appoint a special committee to help your congregation participate in this project.
