If organizing your church’s records seems overwhelming, you are not alone! Sometimes it’s hard to know what to keep (and for how long) and what can be thrown away. This workshop will help you organize and protect your records.

The workshop will support and assist pastors, administrative assistants, trustees and local church historians. Archivists Beth Patkus and Leslie Reyman will introduce participants to basic archival concepts through hands-on activities and provide tips for protecting records from flooding and other disasters. A light lunch will be provided at noon, and a $15 donation will cover costs for lunch, meeting handouts and a tote bag.

2016 marks the 250th anniversary of John Street UMC and of United Methodism in the New York area! The workshop includes a lunchtime talk on John Street's history by Rev. Jason Radmacher, as well as a chance to view the John Street museum and historic sanctuary.
