A New Kit for Your Church’s History

On December 1, 2002, the Baptist History and Heritage Society will release a new and long-awaited resource kit titled A How-to Kit for Your Church’s History.

This kit will contain a detailed How-to Manual for Your Church’s History. The manual will feature up-to-date guidelines for church history committees. It will show churches how to celebrate anniversaries; how to research, write, and publish their histories; and how to observe Baptist Heritage Sunday. It will also include practical suggestions for locating and preserving church records; displaying and exhibiting a church’s history; and communicating, dramatizing, and photographing a church’s past.

Among the many writers are three superb directors of state Baptist history programs: Fred Anderson (Virginia), Frances D. Hamilton (Alabama), and Alan Lefever (Texas).

Baptist churches of all kinds will find this kit useful. Consider ordering copies for your church history committee and for your church media library.

Each kit costs $32.90 (including shipping). However, all orders postmarked and prepaid by November 30, 2002, will pay only $29.90 (including shipping) per kit.

You can order by calling 800-966-2278; by faxing 615-371-7939; or by sending a written request to: Baptist History and Heritage Society, P.O. Box 728, Brentwood, TN 37024-0728.
