DID YOU KNOW that our most recent 2010 church pictorial directory is actually the eighth one that our congregation has published? From the earliest in 1967, each directory has been a great reference to use to learn more about those in our church family. The Archives Committee has put together a display in the narthex showcase of all eight directories. Interestingly, the 2005 directory came with a composite of all photographs printed on canvass to look like our church building. That framed "puzzle" is also part of the new display.
