The last Congregational Heritage Workshop was offered on Saturday, September 15, 2012. Held at Valentine Hall on the campus of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, the Workshop promoted the study and preservation of Lutheran history in the Mid-Atlantic region, especially in those communities and congregations within the ELCA Region 8. Participants attended a variety of workshop sessions about such diverse but staple topics as writing congregations histories, planning significant anniversaries, organizing and preserving records in church archives, library resources for Lutheran history, genealogy, and the study and writing of clergy biographies.
The next congregational heritage workshop has not been scheduled. Stay tuned!
